The GS or Geprüfte Sicherheit (tested safety) mark is a voluntary certification mark applied to finished products that signifies their compliance with all the statutory requirements of the German Product Safety Act. The scope of the GS mark includes essential product characteristics such as electrical safety, chemical and hazardous material use, ergonomics, and noise, and also covers an evaluation of a manufacturer’s factory production. Applying a GS mark to your product reassures safety-conscious German consumers, as well as quickly demonstrating compliance to Germany’s regulators.
Products bearing the GS mark have been subjected to rigorous testing and evaluation. The scope and widespread acceptance of the GS mark by regulatory authorities and German consumers means that products carrying the GS mark hold an important market advantage over comparable products without it.
TÜV SÜD is an accredited body for GS mark testing and certification and has approved test facilities throughout the world. We can assess your products for compliance with all the statutory requirements of the ProdSG, including those addressing electrical and mechanical safety, hazardous materials, ergonomics and noise.
