The main climbing gear certifications are CE and UIAA--and normally the UIAA creates the rules that the CE body also supports. When possible, we try to list all the certifications the product carries.

To sell a climbing product in Europe, the device must be CE certified. There are no official requirements to sell climbing gear in the US. The UIAA certification is a voluntary process.

I’ve used it a ton

The Leopards are an amazing crampon, and are an awesome part of the Petzl system. The little bag allows me to throw them into a running pack, jog up to snow line and keep moving quickly with speed. Skiing the scooped shape makes them even more stable on snow.

Spring, Summer and fall they get loads of use, and have become my most used crampons just because they work so well in such varied terrain. 

The work great on my TLT 7 ski boots, and my Salomon Slab runners. There is a god strapping technique that I learnt from Eric Carter that is worth looking into if you're using these with soft boots. I've used them on my Synchro boots too by swapping parts with other Petzl crampon pieces. While my crampons are also pretty old, the fact that this system can be swapped with the new Irvis front pieces is a really awesome option to have.

The UIAA equipment standard provides a baseline for equipment performance in a test lab under controlled conditions on new equipment. Although these test conditions are relevant to the conditions encountered climbing, conditions encountered at the crags and the condition of the equipment are equally important. This recommendation from the UIAA member federation The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) provides vital equipment information that is NOT explicitly addressed in the standard, particularly failure modes of the equipment and recommendations for the use, inspection, maintenance, and retirement of equipment.
