|Product Marking and Tracking
Since 1992, all Petzl personal protective equipment (PPE) items have been marked with a tracking number. This number consists of 5 digits and a letter. The first 2 digits indicate the year the product was manufactured, the following 3 digits indicate the production date (from 1 to 366) and the letter represents the person who performed the final inspection. Textile products, helmets and most metallic items also have an additional
individual identifier. The system makes it easier to track PPE effectively.
