Accessing background information on the inspection object. Retrieving the complete inspection history.
Some time ago, TÜV SÜD Industrie Service began to affix inspection stickers with a QR code to the equipment it inspected, such as lifts, escalators, pressure vessels, electrical equipment and equipment in potentially explosive atmospheres. With TÜV SÜD’s free Verify app for mobile devices, users can scan these QR codes to access explanations for the equipment type in question and call up the following Information:
- When was the equipment inspected?
- When is the next inspection due?
- What did the inspection cover?
Using the Verify app and a netinform account, customers of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service can retrieve the complete inspection history of an item of equipment online. The app also includes a picture and document upload function.
Verification of inspection certificates
With TÜV SÜD Verify, it is simple to review whether an available inspection certificate for equipment which is subject to mandatory inspection is in compliance with the original certificate saved at TÜV SÜD. By scanning the individual QR code on the certificate, authorised users can directly access the electronically saved data , irrespective of whether the certificate is available in digital form, in PDF format, as a copy or as a fax. Users need only scan the code and the app will display the corresponding original certificate on the TÜV SÜD server.
TÜV SÜD Industrie Service has been saving all its inspection certificates in electronic form since 1995. The original inspection certificate is printed out on special watermarked paper and handed over to customers. In addition, customers can call up and forward their inspection certificates in PDF format. Since PDF files and copies of the original certificate do not have a watermark, the QR code now helps to authenticate the certificate
Further information about the TÜV SÜD Verify app and the electronic inspection certificate is available in our netinform partner portal.
