New services and standards for sustainability

During the expo, TÜV Rheinland announced a number of new services aimed at helping businesses achieve compliance, reduce costs, improve performance, and realize sustainable development together. A one-stop service for nuclear energy safety provides customized solutions based on the relevant laws and regulations governing nuclear power plants, systems, and equipment from their management, inspection, radiation safety, and non-destructive testing to the closing and decommissioning of nuclear power stations.

At the same time, TÜV Rheinland revealed to the public its “Zero Waste to Landfill” certification service. With six modules – waste traceability, source reduction, process management, end processing, risk control, and capability improvement – the aim of the new service is to support companies in realizing waste reduction, recycling, and compliance. Furthermore, with the “circular economy” concept drawing increasing attention in recent years, TÜV Rheinland introduced its biodegradation testing services to the industry during the expo.

In addition, TÜV Rheinland announced that it has partnered with the “Same Production Line, Same Standard, Same Quality” alliance for products to be exported as well as sold domestically to promote the “Three-Same” initiative to the industry. TÜV Rheinland announced the first “Three-Same” standard targeted at consumer towel products as well.
