Product safety - Testing and Certification at the VDE Institute

Testing for product safety is among the VDE Institute’s core tasks. It sets the groundwork for all other tests. Ever since the VDE Institute was founded in 1920, the safety of the tested electric products has been the most important focal point of our tests.

Customer Service

With VDE certifications, manufacturers have the peace of mind that their product meets current normative and legal safety requirements along with generally accepted technology rules. We support manufacturers as early as during the development process, thereby ensuring early error detection and cost savings.

Consumers can rest assured that the VDE-tested product poses no hazard. As such, the VDE mark also ensures legal certainty in liability matters. For consumers, retailers and importers, the VDE mark also means a sure sign that their product complies with all requirements.

In addition to certification with the promotionally effective VDE mark, we also offer an entire assortment of additional national and international test marks and certificates. Our international service grants you access to all important markets worldwide.

Foundations for the certification

Faulty electrical products

Our certifications are based on national and international guidelines, standards and legal requirements. Issuing the approval for carrying the corresponding VDE label includes regular factory inspections and product supervisions to ensure that the product quality remains the same.

As a participant in the IECEE CB (certification body) procedure, we offer CB certificates and CB test reports according to IEC standards. As a result, national marks can be quickly and affordably obtained in countries that participate in the IECEE procedure. This is because tests are accepted based on standardized test reports and do not even need to be repeated. Furthermore, we issue CCA communications and CCA test reports according to EN standards.
