The TÜV Rheinland Product Certificate in Certipedia
A certificate which confirms that a product complies with specified criteria is called a product certificate.
Every year TÜV Rheinland tests a variety of products for safety and quality. After successful testing, the product receives a certificate. It confirms the tested product features and lists the relevant standards under which they were reviewed. For the buyer it is a great help in the purchasing decision. He is no longer only relying on the manufacturer but can also rely on the independent judgment of a neutral expert.
Procedure for a Product Certification
TÜV Rheinland first tests a representative product selection based on appropriate criteria. These tests are usually conducted in TÜV Rheinland labs. In exceptional cases, such as for very large machinery, experts test the product locally at the manufacturer.
To ensure that the certificate is not only a snapshot, TÜV Rheinland employees subsequently monitor the manufacturing plant of the company on a regular basis and check that the products manufactured there correspond to the test sample. In this way, they ensure that the certification of the products remains valid.
In the meantime, manufacturers from 75 countries are included as clients of TÜV Rheinland. Receive an overview of the certified products according to manufacturer from A-Z.
