What does TIC mean for the VDE Testing and Certification Institute?

TIC are precisely the three letters that define us. Because we at the VDE TESTING AND CERTIFICATION INSTITUTE not only conduct tests on safety, electromagnetic compatibility and other product characteristics but we also perform the appropriate inspections and the final certification to obtain the corresponding certificate.
At the same time, we always operate independently and neutrally in order to deliver consistently high quality and reproducible results. 

Information tailored to me

VDE mark – valid certificate or abuse?

The VDE marks are synonymous with safety and allow for simple access to world markets due to the high acceptance of the certified testing service. Devices, components and systems that fulfill the criteria and are successfully certified not only receive the corresponding VDE certificate but also earn a spot in our "Hall of Quality".
