Our test mark is the visible indication of the highest possible quality in testing products, services, systems and processes in all sectors. The testmark consists of the shield with logo of TÜV Rheinland and a ID of the test. Furthermore external testmarks, a QR-code and year rings can be added to provide more information about the test, inspection or certification.
1 QR code
The QR code (QR stands for ‘quick response’) has been added to the test mark at the request of customers. Scanning it with a smart phone provides direct access to the certification database Certipedia by TÜV Rheinland.
On Certipedia comprehensive information about products, manufacturers and tests is available. Also photos, videos and descriptive text can be added.
2 ID number
As before, you can access the web page of the newly revised certification database by entering the ten-digit test ID number on Certipedia (former tuvdotcom.com). Those who wish to learn more about the test can find even more comprehensive details on Certipedia than before.
3 External test marks
Test marks such as the GS mark are an integral part of the TÜV Rheinland test mark.
The number of keywords are the same worldwide. They no longer describe the content of the test, but the results of the test: for example ISO 9001.
5 Year rings
The date of the periodically recurring tests is shown by the year rings.
