The GS Mark, which stands for Geprüfte Sicherheit ("Tested Safety") is a voluntary certification scheme for consumer products. Awarding of the GS Mark means that the product not only meets the safety requirements set out in the German Product Safety Act and, if applicable, relevant European safety standards, but it exceeds the legal requirements for safety.
Although the GS Mark was initially designed for the German market, it is now a worldwide recognized mark of safety, and communicates to your customers that your product adheres to high standards.
Under the QIMA group, the GS certification is carried out by the Hansecontrol Certification Company to conduct relevant testing and award the GS mark for the following product groups:
In order to test whether your product meets the requirements for the GS Mark, the laboratory under the Certification Body, accredited by the Zentralstelle der Länder für Sicherheitstechnik (ZLS), will conduct the following checks:
Tests of items from the serial or batch production
Tests of compliance with legal requirements
Initial and yearly manufacturing site audit for continuous control of production
If the certification process confirms your product’s compliance with all relevant requirements, it will be issued a GS Certificate, and awarded the GS Mark (valid for five years maximum).
