Household appliances include:
Motor operated kitchen appliances, refrigerators, hair dryers, vacuum cleaners, heating appliances, air conditioning devices, washing machines, stoves, etc.
The world of household appliances knows no borders. Nevertheless, any company wishing to open up new sectors of this global market has to overcome certain hurdles - otherwise known as European and national directives. This is where TÜV Rheinland Product can offer its support.
In order to achieve success on a global scale, domestic appliances must offer a high degree of safety. Internationally recognised test marks are testimony to a product's compliance with relevant international safety criteria. TÜV Rheinland Product can perform all the necessary inspections and certification work on your behalf.
