Global Procurement

Corporate Procurement - TÜV Rheinland

TÜV Rheinland Global Procurement Office has defined standard products and standard suppliers.

In Germany and several countries, our suppliers’ products are offered on our Purchase-to-Pay ordering platform powered by SAP Ariba Network.

Regardless of which platform or process is used for transacting with our suppliers, all suppliers are subjected to accept TÜV Rheinland´s Procurement Terms & Conditions (PTC) and Tender Conditions(TCS). These documents are provided to suppliers on this page as well as on the local country pages along with local PTCs.

Global Procurement regularly invites supplier to tender via the internet which leads to the signing of global frame contracts. Short term projects and not listed goods or services cannot be considered.

TÜV Rheinland Group’s activities are based on the principles of UN Global Compact. Sustainability, responsibility and compliance are key elements of our sustainable corporate strategy and the base for cooperation with our suppliers. Only those companies which are committed to these values could be considered as suppliers. All cooperation with our suppliers are based on our tenders (TCS) and procurement terms & conditions (PTC).

Web-based Whistleblowing System

You can reach the whistleblower platform here:

Related explanations:

In order to protect human rights and the environment, the TÜV Rheinland whistleblowing platform enables all potentially involved persons to submit information or complaints in this regard. Instances of non-compliance, such as concrete violations of laws, internal company guidelines or our Compliance Program (e.g. the Code of Conduct), may be reported. The platform is publicly available and thus accessible for all potentially involved parties via the TÜV Rheinland homepage, i.e. both own employees, employees of business partners and suppliers, but also external parties and institutions. The system is specifically designed for reports of potential compliance incidents and not for general complaints. A complaint or information can be reported anonymously or openly; in any case, the complaint will be treated confidentially and in compliance with the legal requirements.
