Certification mark for playground equipment Z2_008


This certification mark applies to stationary playground equipment and surfacing for public playgrounds and playgrounds at kindergartens, schools and similar facilities. Excluded from the scope are adventure playgrounds. The playground equipment, including slides, swings, roundabouts and climbing equipment, can be used by one or more children.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is based on the EN 1176 standard. This standard defines the safety-related requirements for playground equipment, i.e. the criteria that must be fulfilled by playground equipment to protect children from dangers.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • 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 If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
