For containers, the CSC (International Convention for Safe Containers) badge is comparable to the TÜV. The tests in this regard refer to the technical safety of a container and they must be carried out at various intervals: For new containers, they are carried out immediately after production, so there is a validity of 5 years. After this period, the owner must ensure that specialized personnel carry out inspections and tests every 2.5 years in order to maintain the standard. The validity can be read from the sticker of the CSC badge. Another procedure to ensure the safety of the containers is called ACEP (Approved Continous Examination Program).
An equal safety standard is realized by regular internal control procedures, so that a container with ACEP is checked for its technical safety at every delivery and receipt. A container with ACEP has a different sticker without validity, due to the constant controls.
When you buy new containers from us, there is always a CSC certificate with a validity of 5 years, for used containers we guarantee CSC for 12 months. We will gladly issue CSC certificates to you upon request. They contain the gross weight, as well as net weight and empty weight of the container.
