Sports and Fitness Equipment Testing and Certification
Manufacturers of sports and leisure equipment must ensure that their products comply with applicable safety requirements and standards, and substantiate specific claims regarding product performance. Sports, fitness and leisure equipment testing puts a product through a series of rigorous tests to ensure it can withstand its intended use and possible misuse. Sports equipment certification by an independent third party gives consumers and retailers confidence that the product can do what its manufacturer claims and inspires trust in the brand. TÜV SÜD offers testing services for a wide range of sports, fitness and leisure equipment. The product scope for fitness equipment we test for is extensive and includes. Basketball stands, bending bar, bicycles, dumbbells, elliptical trainers, exercise bikes, gripping devices, gym balls, helmets, inline skates, outdoor training equipment, roller skates, rowing machines, skate boards, skate scooters, ski boots, skis, snowboards spin bikes, steppers/stair climbers, strength training benches, strength training equipment, trampolines, treadmills and weight benches.
