Certification Mark For Mattresses Based on EN 1725  Certification Mark For Mattresses Based on EN 1725


The certification mark applies to mattresses made from various materials, including pocket-spring, latex and cold foam mattresses. The certificate is not awarded to waterbeds and inflatable mattresses. 

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. The test procedure developed by TÜV SÜD is based on various standards including the European standard EN 1957. This standard defines test procedures to determine the functional characteristics of mattresses. With respect to safety-related requirements – all parts of the bed with which users can come into contact in normal use must be free from burrs and sharp edges –  and durability, tests are based on standards such as the EN 1725.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • Shoes
    The certification mark is awarded to shoes certified by TÜV SÜD (see scope).
  • Production monitored

    Periodic surveillance and/or monitoring of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product testing.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid (withdrawn) and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.

  • Fit tested

    TÜV SÜD Product Service tests the shoe lasts that form the basis of shoe manufacturing for various criteria, including length and heel width. Subsequently, the interior dimensions of the prototype shoes manufactured on the basis of the lasts are verified.

  • Regular product suveillance

    At regular intervals certified products will be bought in the market to perform spot checks and verify that the product is still meeting the requirements defined on the certification mark.

  • Tested for harmful substances

    For the statement "Tested for harmful substances", TÜV SÜD tested the product for hazardous substances. The test is based on legal requirements, specific national requirements and own specifications.
