What is the TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark?

The TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark is typically used for electrical components (but it is not restricted to electrical components) and is widely recognised by manufacturers and certification bodies around the globe. The TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark demonstrates that a representative sample of the product has been evaluated, tested and approved for safety and that the production line is inspected on an annual basis.

The TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark is a voluntary standard that adds value to your electrical components and helps manufacturers further down the supply chain feel confident that your components are safe, reliable and will reduce testing time.

What are the benefits of the TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark?

The safety of an electrical appliance is greatly dependent on the safety of its components – each of these must be certified as safe and secure. If a manufacturer is not confident that a component is reliable, they will often refuse to use it – because it may require extra testing further down the line. Therefore, component producers need to demonstrate that their goods are safe and reliable.

The TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark is a widely recognised symbol that demonstrates that an electrical component has been certified as safe by a trusted independent third party.
