This European Standard provides a system for the identification and presentation of information about swap bodies. The identification system is intended for general application, for example in documentation, control and communications (including automatic data processing systems), as well as for display on the swap bodies and other non ISO containers (i.e.: which dimensions and testing parameters differ from those defined by the applicable ISO standards) used in European transport. The methods of displaying identification and certain other data (including operational data) on swap bodies by means of permanent marks are included. This European Standard specifies: a) a swap body identification system with an associated system for verifying the accuracy of its use, having: - mandatory marks for the presentation of the identification system for visual interpretation, and - features to be used in optional Automatic Equipment Identification (AEI) and Electronic Data Interchange (EDI); b) a coding system for data on swap body size and type, with corresponding marks for their display; c) mandatory operational marks; d) physical presentation of the marks on the swap body.
