TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark


As a voluntary mark, the TÜV SÜD Bauart Mark (Type Tested Mark) is typically used for 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. The production line is inspected on an annual Basis.

Our certification services

  • Type tested
    The voluntary certification mark with the statement "Type tested" is awarded for products and components, indicating that the product/component was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements. The certification criteria vary depending on the products in question.
  • Production monitored
    Periodic surveillance 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 If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
