Certification mark motorbike jacket

Certification mark motorbike jacket

Scope:

The certification mark applies to motorbike jackets with integrated airbags.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. The certification mark is based on standards including the EN 1621-4 standard, which governs the requirements and test methods for inflatable protectors for motorcyclists.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • Protection
    The certified product was designed to make airbag technology, which has been in use for years in the automotive industry, available to motorcyclists. In the case of an accident, electronically controlled airbags integrated in the jacket will inflate quickly, providing additional protection for the upper Body.

    As an item of personal protective equipment (PPE) certified by TÜV SÜD, the airbag jacket meets the requirements of the EN 1621-4 standard and TÜV SÜD's protection and safety criteria, which are verified in 800 individual tests.
  • Electronic Safety
    The certified product was tested for electronic safety. The tests included, but were not limited to, battery testing and testing of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).
  • Ergonomics
    The certified product was tested for its ergonomics. The product was designed and made specifically for motorcycling. The motorbike jacket offers users adequate protection at the highest level possible.
  • Product Tested
    Within the scope of the certification, TÜV SÜD carried out in-depth product tests. Only products passing these tests will be awarded the TÜV SÜD certification mark.
  • 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.
