Experience in recent years has shown that it is becoming increasingly important for buyers of technical work equipment and other products to purchase products that have been tested by an independent, third party. Tested work equipment gives buyers the certainty that the product and the documents supplied with it comply with the safety and health requirements. Buying tested products makes it easier for employers to adhere to the Ordinance on Industrial Safety and Health (“Betriebssicherheitsverordnung”).

BG-PRÜFZERT is offering a new, easy way of searching for tested transport products. All products with a valid certificate issued by the Expert Committee can be viewed by product group, making it easier for haulage companies, garages and other buyers to find and choose the transport products they want.

  • Waste disposal machines/vehicles
  • Aircraft ground support equipment/machines
  • Load-securing components
  • Cleaning and snow-clearing/gritting machinery
  • Vehicle superstructures
  • Lifting platforms/machines for persons and for vehicles
  • Inland navigation vessels and recreational craft

By making this free database search tool available, the Expert Committee on Transport has expanded the BG-PRÜFZERT industry-based search engine.
