SLG mark "Usability tested"
Functionality, handling and durability are important product characteristics before consumers make a buying decision. Therefore, we have developed specific test programmes for garden and outdoor equipment, tools and household appliances to thoroughly examine their performance characteristics. Separate evalutions for functionality, handling and durability are then incorporated into an overall SLG FFU rating - ranging on a five-tier scale from VERY GOOD to INADEQUATE.
For a product achieving VERY GOOD or GOOD in the SLG FFU overall rating, the manufacturer may apply for the right to use the SLG test mark "Fit for use". However, the test mark shall only be awarded if the product meets all safety standards legally required.
