ACCEPTABLE AND UNACCEPTABLE DEFECT EVALUATION CARD

Acceptable defects

Pallet evaluation card



1

The grey colour of a pallet, being a result of the natural wood ageing process, does not affect pallet quality.

2

It is permitted to use pallets with boards cracked, provided that the edges of the cracks do not come apart (a crack may extend along the entire length of the board).

3

It is permitted to use pallets with a small wane, without bark, as shown in the picture.

4

It is permitted to use pallets with unreadable or damaged markings on a block, provided that the corresponding block on the other side is marked correctly and is legible

5

Repaired pallets can be used as long as the repair is certified by a repairing nail. The wooden components used for the process must be new and undergo mandatory heat treatment.

6

Where a middle block has been replaced, the new block should not have marks burned into it, but only a repair nail hammered in. The right-hand block should have a EUR logo with a dot in an oval. The left-hand block should have an EPAL logo with a dot in an oval (this also applies to repaired railway pallets, e.g. CD. MAC etc.)

7

It is permitted to use pallets having their outer boards chipped, provided that the depth of the chipping does not exceed 2 cm and no more than 1 nail is visible.

8

It is permitted to use pallets with cracks in blocks provided that no nails are visible.

9

It is permitted to use pallets with middle and side stringer boards cracked on condition that the stringer board has its entire surface rested on the blocks underneath.
