Certification mark for school satchels


The certification mark applies to school satchels.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is based on the DIN 58124 standard (Satchels – Requirements and testing), which specifies basic safety requirements in order to reduce the danger of accidents for schoolchildren on their way to school.

Key words of the certification mark:


  • DIN 58124
    The certified satchels are in compliance with the requirements of the DIN 58124 standard (see basis of certification). As other road users may easily overlook children on their way to school, satchels have to fulfil certain requirements to improve the safety of children on the road. The objective is to reduce potential hazards.
  • Safety tested

    The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is issued for products, indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.

  • Production monitored
    Periodic surveillance of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification which includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD 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 check.

    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 If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
