Certification mark for scratch remover

 

Scope:

The certification mark applies to scratch removers which remove scratches from paintwork. The quality of the products must be such that the products do not cause any risks to users when used as intended.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. Prerequisite for testing: The formula, i.e. the composition, of the scratch remover, including all ingredients, must be submitted to TÜV SÜD Product Service.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • Proven effectivity
    Testing checks that the product is easy to apply and polish. The colour depth and brilliance of the polishing result approximately correspond to that of new car paintwork.
  • Paint compatibility

    The polishing pastes do not damage standard car paintwork, nor does applying the scratch remover result in deterioration of the paint surface.

  • Type tested
    The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Type tested” is issued for products and components. The certification mark demonstrates that the product/component was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements. The certification criteria vary depending on the products in question.
  • 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 If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
