An initial concerted action by the EPAL and UIC inspection companies, Bureau Veritas and SGS, took place on 27th May 2015 on the premises of a licensee of both organisations. The joint operation is the result of a meeting of EPAL and UIC representatives held on 20th May 2015 in Vienna, in which the joint responsibility for the open pallet exchange pool and maintaining the quality standard of the pool were discussed.
The concerted action is the first joint step following the signing of the agreement on the common European pallet pool on 24th November 2014. Further joint operations are in the pipeline.
