EUR PALLET

UIC pallets working group

Wooden pallets are used for carriage of goods and form part of the packaging for goods conveyed by all modes of transport, particularly by rail.

Since 1961, the provisions and requirements of the 435 series of UIC Leaflets have constituted the basis for the production and repair of pallets. They also set out requirements for pallet licensing, control and quality systems.

To ensure the general functionality of pallet production and repair and to improve interchangeability, the UIC Working Group is committed to:

  • Offering the product with the same high quality to new and existing users in an open, exchangeable pallet pool
  • Revising and updating UIC Leaflet series 435 in accordance with European legislation
  • Classifying existing pallet quality in accordance with trade and industry specifications
  • Maintaining the rules – and, in particular, the quality system - for UIC/EUR pallets
  • Proposing innovative testing systems
  • Protecting the “UIC + EUR” trademark stamped on the pallets with the help of national authorities
