Another focus in addition to product quality is product safety. Product safety is verified in safety tests carried out by TÜV SÜD Product Service on products sampled from high-volume production.
The statement “Safety tested” indicates that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements. The certification criteria vary depending on the products in question.
While the focus in the case of a hair dryer, for example, is on electrical safety, the focus in the case of a car jack is on the mechanical characteristics. Certification is based on product-specific standards and test programmes. They are identified on the certificate in question.
