Product Safety: Approval and Certification Support

In the world of product safety, achieving certification and approval is a critical step. These certifications are typically issued by official TIC (testing, inspection, certification) bodies, such as those responsible for evaluating safety components in accordance with regulations like the machinery regulation. These certification bodies, holding accreditations such as IEC 17020, IEC 17025, or IEC 17065 by national institutes like DAkks in Germany, play a crucial role in ensuring the safety and compliance of products.

However, the road to functional safety certification and approval can be a challenging one. Each assessor may have their unique approach, and interpretations of requirements can vary. Moreover, different notified bodies may set their own basis for approval, even though it should ideally be based on harmonized standards and agreements from working committees.

In cases where certification and expert assessments are conducted in Germany, we maintain a particularly close cooperation with the “Institute for Occupational Safety and Health” (IFA) of the German Accident Insurance, as well as the global branches of “Associations for Technical Inspection” (TÜV) and “Underwriters Laboratories” (UL).

Some of the main testing and certification institutes we collaborate with include:
