The GS Mark, which stands for Geprüfte Sicherheit ("Tested Safety") is a voluntary certification scheme for technical equipment. Awarding of the GS Mark means that the product meets the safety requirements set out in the German Product Safety Act and, if applicable, relevant European safety standards. Moreover, the GS Mark certification requirements exceed those of the mandatory CE mark and the EN standard – meaning that products awarded the GS Mark exceed the required 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.
QIMA, through Hansecontrol Zertifizierungsgesellschaft mbH, is authorized 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:
Product prototype tests
Tests of compliance with legal requirements
Initial and yearly manufacturing site inspection/audit for continuous control of production
If the testing 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).
