Certification mark for REACH

Certification mark for REACH

Scope:

The certification mark applies to finished electrical and electronic products.

Basis of certification:

The test procedure developed by TÜV SÜD is based on Regulation (EC) No. 1907/2006 (REACH – Regulation concerning the Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals). Within the scope of the certification, TÜV SÜD Product Service carries out factory inspection once annually. In addition, the products are tested for safety.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • REACH
    The certified products must fulfil the requirements of Regulation  (EC) No. 1907/2006. This means the products must not contain more than0.1 per cent weight by weight (w/w) of substances of very high concern (SVHC). A list of the substances classified as being of very high concern (SVHC) can be found on the ECHA website – European Chemicals Agency.
  • 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 manufacturer of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification that includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD Product Service 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 finished product testing.

    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, certificate validity will expire and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
