Overview TÜV SÜD Certification Marks

TÜV SÜD certification marks are among the best-known of their kind in Germany. The blue octagon is associated with credibility, neutrality, competence and reliability. This positive image is based on high standards and high quality of our certifications. This philosophy is embedded in our company’s principles and is the basis for each and every one of our services.

We award the TÜV SÜD certification marks to companies whose management systems have been successfully certified by us. Only those who have passed the certification process successfully and have a valid certificate are entitled to use our certification marks for advertising puposes.

Certifications of TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH are usually audits of processes within a management system. A management system describes management tasks and combines methods and tools to meet the requirements of specific areas (for example quality, environmental protection, occupational safety, etc.). The management system is used to operate and control the company. Products or services of the respective company are not examined within the scope of such audits. Certifications of management systems help companies to optimize their internal processes and the entire organization leading to a process of continuous improvement.

Difference between TÜV SÜD certification marks and TÜV SÜD company logots-difference-logo-to-cm

A TÜV SÜD certification mark is more than TÜV SÜD company logo. The most important difference is that a certification mark always includes the respective certification standard according to which the company has been certified within the blue octagon.

Only TÜV SÜD certification marks may be used by successfully certified companies for advertising purposes. Advertising with or usage of the TÜV SÜD company logo is exclusively reserved for companies of TÜV SÜD Group.

The blue octagon is well-known. But what do the certification standards mean that can be found on the certification marks? To answer this question we have established this website.
