Individual serial number evolution
In order to improve the product manufacturing traceability, Petzl decided to evolve the codification of the individual Serial Number of its PPE. The new codification will include the manufacturing batch number, which will give to Petzl a faster and more precise access to all manufacturing data's.
This evolution is going to be implemented gradually to the PPE all along of the Years 2016 and 2017.
Note also that Instructions for Use will include gradually these evolutions. Consequently, during these two Years 2016 & 2017, you will observe some differences between the explanations of the serial number visible in the Instructions for Use, and the serial number visible on your PPE.
Datamatrix is going to evolve. With this new codification (type B), only the individual serial number will be readable when scanning the Datamatrix.
