How can I find out the age of my Petzl PPE?
All our PPE products are now identified by a serial number.
This number may be marked in a number of ways: laser, engraving, label, etc. It allows us to identify our products.
To find out the year of manufacture, refer to this detailed serial number in the following manner:
Example for recent PPE: 09 365 AB 1 234
- 09 corresponds to the year of manufacture
- 365 corresponds to the day of manufacture in that year
- AB is the code of the person who inspected the product
- 1234 is the individual product number
- 99 is the year of manufacture
- 289 is the day of manufacture in that year
- A is the code of the person who inspected the product
- 05 is the month of manufacture in the year
- 06 is the year of manufacture
