By bringing interdisciplinary expertise and international experience to the table, the experts from TÜV SÜD are making a major contribution towards bringing safe, reliable new sanitation technologies to the market and grounding organisations sustainability goals in action. The services provided by TÜV SÜD in the area of sustainability and sanitation span support for governments, non-governmental organizations, laboratories, investors in sustainability and sanitation projects, and manufacturers and operators of sanitation technologies.


    For sanitation innovators, TÜV SÜD offers a proven process to assess technological readiness and prepare your system for certification. At the preliminary study stage, we prepare a customized checklist to guide you in organizing and preparing documentation and testing reports needed for certification. The next step is a gap analysis, which results in a structured test plan to complete testing according to ISO 30500. Finally, we assist in conducting this performance testing and developing recommendations and next steps for system improvement. A fully customised certification readiness assessment gives innovators a guided actionable path to product certification.

    TÜV SÜD’s longstanding expertise in testing, inspection, and certification combines with our unique experience in developing ISO 30500 to bring sanitation innovators clear and efficient plans and expert solutions for achieving certification. We offer not only unparalleled knowledge but also global networks of laboratories and testing facilities to guide your products through a streamlined certification process.
