Product certification: Product testing and test mark as proof of quality

Product certifications and test marks | TÜV Rheinland

Signal high quality and safety with our product tests and test marks

A product certificate confirms that a product meets defined criteria and defined safety-relevant aspects. The certificate specifies the basic principles according to which a product was tested. Corresponding test marks provide customers visible proof of quality to serve as a reliable decision-making aid when choosing a product. In a glance, recognized test marks are validation that product-specific quality has been checked by an independent third party. According to an end consumer survey, almost 90 % of respondents prefer manufacturer advertising statements to be neutrally reviewed and confirmed.

Our experts have many years of experience and support you with industry-specific product tests and certifications. We provide services for regulatory tests required by law for market approval as well as voluntary tests. Minimum requirements insist that safety-related aspects are met. Additional quality criteria determined by our specialists can be tested and certified to demonstrate your product meets the expectations of your customer.

With our internationally recognized test mark , you can easily signal the suitability, safety and high quality of your products in an effective advertising campaign.
