Certification mark self-extinguishing waste bins


The certification mark applies to self-extinguishing waste bins.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is awarded within the framework of voluntary testing and certification. The test procedure developed by TÜV SÜD covers testing for pointed and sharp edges, burrs, crushing and shearing hazards, corrosion protection, handles, mechanical means, safety devices, stability in the case of waste collectors, fastenings, materials and self-extinguishing properties. 


Key words of the certification mark:

  • Self-extinguishing
    The certified products are able, on the basis of their design or other devices, to independently extinguish a fire starting in the waste bin. The objective of the extinguishing device is to cut off the supply of oxygen that feeds the flames.
  • 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 If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will become invalid (withdrawn) and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
