About CSC Plating

A CSC (International Convention for Safe Containers) plate is required on all ISO containers that are being used for Intermodal transport. The CSC plate acts as a container’s certificate of safety, and allows container depots, and international ports the assurance that a container is safe to be handled and transported whilst fully loaded.

Each container must pass the technical requirements of the ‘International Convention for Safe Containers’ in order to be awarded a plate. This is generally done initially on completion from the factory, whereby the new ISO shipping container is given a CSC plate valid for 5 years.

After that 5 year period each container must be individually assessed and the valid timescale of each CSC plate will depend entirely on the structural integrity of each container.

Each CSC plate contains the following information:

  • “CSC SAFETY APPROVAL” Stamp
  • Country of approval and approval reference
  • Date of manufacture
  • Manufacturer’s identification number of the container
  • Maximum Gross Weight (Kg and Lbs)
  • Allowable stacking Weight (Kg and Lbs)
  • Transverse racking test load value

Willbox have representatives who are able to apply new CSC plates to all shipping containers. This is common depot service, which is required to be carried out on behalf of the shipping lines, as their containers frequently come out of plate during their working life. Willbox are also able to offer a full container inspection and survey under IICL5.

If you require your container to be CSC plated, or have a IICL5 Survey, please contact a Willbox representative on 0800 023 5060.

I know that shipping containers are not normally something to get too excited about, but the level of service you have provided me with recently certainly is! Dave Whitwham Eaton Corporation

However, I wont be using Willbox again with your refusal to open a credit account,
We found the service at Willbox to be exceptional. They were very helpful and quick to assist with any queries we had. Deliveries and collections were on time and a smooth process to arrange. Will most definitely use again in the future.
I've just had the container I've been renting for the past few years collected and want to pass on my experience with Willbox...from beginning to end the company has been a pleasure to deal with. The delivery was to a quite challenging rural location, but this was no problem to the operator, who manoeuvred the container into place with great expertise. Billing was straightforward and the monthly invoices were prompt and accounting-friendly. Communication was always friendly and enjoyable. The collection of the container was again, impressively done. If you're looking for the best in the field Willbox are it - look no further! Many thanks to all concerned.
