CSC safety inspection

CSC stands for the International Convention for Safe Containers.

In general, any container used for international transport must have a valid safety approval plate or "CSC plate".
CSC is the abbreviation for Container Safety Convention.
In order to avoid damage in transit, the container should, however, be properly inspected before and after packing.
CSC safety inspection

The CSC plate must contain all details on the container, e.g. type, manufacturer, approval number (also important for customs), year of manufacture serial number, weights and the expiration date of the plate. Renewals must take place 5 years after the first inspection at the latest and can only be carried out by specialist firms authorized to do so.
