Recalls & Warnings

A recall is a request to return to the manufacturer a batch or an entire production run of a product, usually due to the discovery of safety issues. The UIAA endeavours to maintain a listing of recalled climbing equipment including partial recalls as well as appeals for checking equipment. Use this search to find affected equipment.

Important: The information in the database is believed to be accurate and up to date; however the UIAA does not accept liability for any inadvertent error or omission. The UIAA constantly invests in solutions to provide clean and efficient service to its stakeholders through this feature. We solicit your support in identifying Recalls that are not found in the search function, by reporting them.
