Product certification serves to confirm that a product conforms to specific requirements.These requirements are laid down in standards, laws and sets of rules and regulations.
Confirmation of general criteria for a product is not enough for us, since only certain minimum requirements are often necessary to obtain such confirmation.Conventional standards frequently fail to take ample account of usability, user-friendliness and quality.

Product certification: All types of products may be certified
Whether (manufactured) goods, procedures, processes or services: in adherence to strict standards of quality assurance, certified products are regularly monitored by TÜV AUSTRIA to ensure that the required criteria are met.
Factory visits, laboratory tests, usability tests and studies serve to test products according to criteria of user-friendliness. The submitted products are certified only on condition that they pass all the individual tests.
Product expert Andreas Reiterer comments: “Certification marks catch the consumers’ attention. Voluntary certification reflects the manufacturer’s trust in its products. The result: quality, reliability and a new dimension of economic efficiency.”

When a product has passed certification, TÜV AUSTRIA issues a certificate.
In addition, the TÜV AUSTRIA logo may be placed on the product and used for marketing purposes. Moreover, certified products are published in the TÜV AUSTRIA directory.
The added value: a considerable competitive edge
A certification by TÜV AUSTRIA creates trust and serves as objective proof of a product’s quality.
Above all, TÜV AUSTRIA certificates provide clear and concise information for consumers, decision-makers and clients.
Products certified by TÜV AUSTRIA often have a considerable competitive edge. Thanks to an extensive cooperation and promotion network, certificates issued by TÜV AUSTRIA are endorsed by interest groups, authorities, manufacturers, standardisation groups and research facilities.
