Certification mark for DUMBBELLS



This voluntary TÜV SÜD certification mark is awarded for Dumbbells for professional gym use. It demonstrates that the product has been tested and certified by the third-party expert organization TÜV SÜD Product Service. The certification mark is only awarded to products that undergo product testing and inspection by TÜV SÜD Product Service and comply with the criteria quoted below.

Basis of certification:

Certification is based on the product-specific test standard developed by TÜV SÜD Product Service (PPP 62002), which covers various directives, regulations and standards, e.g. Salt Mist spray according to EN 60068-2-52, EN71-3 cadmium, lead content, migration of certain elements, nickel and PAH testing.

Keywords of the certification mark:

  • PPP 62002

    The following aspects were tested according to TÜV SÜD’s PPP 62002 test programme:

    • Review of documentation and markings
    • Constructional review
    • Mechanical testing
    • Chemical testing
  • Safety tested

    The voluntary TÜV SÜD certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is awarded 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 and/or monitoring of the manufacture 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 final 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, the certificate will become invalid and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
