TÜV SÜD Mark
The TÜV SÜD Mark represents your competitive advantage, serving as a purchasing decision guide and aid to consumers selecting safe products. Products bearing the TÜV SÜD mark are tested by our independently accredited labs against all relevant standards. The facilities where the products are manufactured are then audited annually by our experts to ensure that quality and safety standards are being maintained consistently.
The GS or "Geprüfte Sicherheit" (Tested Safety) Mark is a voluntary certification mark based on the German Equipment and Product Safety Act (GPSG) and indicates a product's compliance to German or European safety standards. Widely recognised across Europe, the Mark is issued upon the completion of a testing and production inspection program and remains valid on the condition that an annual inspection is carried out. Obtaining the trusted mark demonstrates your commitment to consumer protection and enhances consumer's confidence in your products.
The CE Marking is a mandatory mark for any product that falls within the scope of an EU Directive and is intended for sale in the European Market. By affixing the mark to a product a manufacturer, importer or entity is declaring that the product conforms to the appropriate EU Directives. TUV SÜD supports and assist you throughout the entire process of obtaining CE conformity for your toys and children's' products with services such as:
- Research into and interpretation of standards
- Risk assessment and design Review
- TÜV SÜD certificate "Tested Safety"
