Certification mark for BBQ firelighters and lamp oils

Scope:

The certification mark applies to firelighters for lighting barbecue charcoal and to lamp oils. Given this, the scope includes solid firelighters and firelighter fluids as well as lighter gels and gases.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. The test procedure of TÜV SÜD Product Service was developed according to the EN 1860-3 standard. The standard includes requirements for the safety, burning characteristics and ignition performance of firelighters and the test methods to be applied.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • Consumer safety

    Consumer safety
    TÜV SÜD Product Service tests the product for their safety, and thus for their composition, flashpoint and viscosity. Testing also covers performance, such as burning characteristics.

    The product packaging is inspected for safety and for the required labelling, such as hazard statements, hazard pictograms and precautionary statements.

  • Production monitored
    Periodic surveillance of the manufacturer 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 finished 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, certificate validity will expire and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
  • 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.
