Certification mark for compressed gas canisters

 

Scope:

The certification mark applies to compressed gas canisters and non-refillable metallic gas cartridges.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is based on the EN 417 standard. The standard defines aspects including the important features that cartridges for liquefied gases must have. It also defines the procedures and requirements on which type testing is based.

Key words of the certification mark:

 

  • EN 417
    The tested products must fulfill the requirements of the EN 417 standard, “Non-refillable metallic gas cartridges for liquefied petroleum gases, with or without a valve, for use with portable appliances. Construction, inspection, testing and marking” (see Basis of certification).
  • 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 If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
