Proven quality with our non-active medical device testing and certification
The GM mark (Geprueftes Medizinprodukt) is a certification confirming that your product meets a globally recognized standard in the areas of quality, safety and manufacturing. Securing the GM mark also demonstrates your intention as a reputable merchant.
Non-active medical devices (Class I) are not required to adhere to the strict quality testing imposed on active medical devices. This means there is a much lower barrier-to-entry into the market. While this may seem advantageous, the challenge of achieving differentiation becomes more difficult.
Securing quality certifications such as the GM mark proves your products go beyond the mandated regulations and your commitment to excellence.
Demonstrate quality with the GM mark and extend your market access!
