The CP Pallets scheme was started in the early 1990s by the German Chemicals Industry Association (VCI). In 1993, PlasticsEurope took over the management of the scheme from the VCI. PlasticsEurope’s experts developed detailed guidelines related to the size, quality of materials and marking:
- CP1 to CP5 pallets are for the chemical industry.
- CP6 to CP9 pallets are for the polymer industry.
