How can tested products help me?

Buyers often find it difficult to judge the safety of a product correctly. Certification marks such as the GS mark and the DGUV Test mark are a good way of helping them choose a product that they know will be safe. The testing and certification bodies of the institutions for statutory accident insurance and prevention and their good reputation are the guarantee that the product does comply with the requirements.

What certification marks does DGUV Test award?

Manufacturers whose products have passed safety testing can be awarded a DGUV Test certification mark, providing a quickly recognisable sign that the manufacturer cares about safety. The DGUV Test testing and certification bodies award both the GS mark and the DGUV Test mark.

How can I find out whether a certification mark or a certificate is valid?

Our certificate database shows all of the DGUV Test-tested products that have a valid certificate. It provides a simple way of checking whether a product's certification mark is valid. Alternatively, you can contact us (DGUV Test secretariat).
Please bear in mind that we can only give information about certificates issued by DGUV Test. For information concerning other certificates or certification marks, please contact the relevant testing and certification body.

What is the meaning of the CE mark and which products is it required for?

By applying a CE mark to a product, the manufacturer declares that the product complies with the requirements of all of the EC directives relevant to said product. The CE mark may only be applied to products for which it is required by an EC directive.
