By awarding a certificate we proof as an independent third party that your product complies with certain legal requirements and standards as well as with test standards developed in-house. Certified products can increase the customer's confidence in your product.
In order to qualify for a certificate, your product must successfully pass all tests according to a specifically designed test programme and evaluation criteria. Additionally, further documents might be needed before a certificate can be awarded, e.g. a successful factory inspection would be needed for awarding a GS mark.
Product certificates are awarded on a national, European or international level. As an example the GS mark is a German test mark which is awarded according to requirements defined in the German Product Safety Act (ProdSG).
A list of SLG marks is available in our Mark catalogue.
We provide information on certification programmes on request.
