Manufacturers Discover the GS S1 Certificate Covers All the Bases

As consumer concerns over product safety continue to linger, more and more manufacturers are seeking the TÜV Rheinland® GS S1 Certificate – which combines both a GS Mark and CE Marking for their products.

 
PRLog - Apr. 6, 2010 - NEWTOWN, Conn. -- NEWTOWN, CT — As consumer concerns over product safety continue to linger, more and more manufacturers are seeking the TÜV Rheinland® GS S1 Certificate – which combines both a GS Mark and CE Marking for their products. In fact, 80% of products already bear both marks to not only demonstrate safety but also differentiate from similar products, a growing trend in the European Union.

The GS S1 Certificate demonstrates full compliance with both the German Equipment Safety Act and the Low Voltage Directive (LVD), a minimum EU requirement, with a statement that the product has complied with Annex I of the LVD (2006/95/EEC). Additionally, the certificate can be used in connection with the manufacturer’s EC declaration of conformity, according to Annex III of the LVD.

“Manufacturers are finding the TÜV Rheinland GS S1 Certificate to be the de facto certificate for acceptance into Europe,” according to Dan Sullivan, TÜV Rheinland’s Product Safety Division Manager.  “With one certificate, they combine the GS with a proof of compliance to the Low Voltage Directive.  The GS S1 certificate is a value-added cost benefit to the manufacturer that, because of high consumer awareness – can effectively boost the product’s credibility and marketability across the European Union.”

Manufacturers have cut costs by attaining a proof of compliance to both the CE and GS Marks through the TÜV Rheinland® GS S1 Certificate.  The GS Mark and CE Marking – when combined – has the power to further expand a product’s marketability because of the high numbers of consumers in the European Union who are familiar with and prefer products tested by TÜVRheinland.  

TÜVRheinland is offering a 10% discount to any company requesting third-party certification services to attain a GS S1 certificate.

Regarded as a passport to Europe and symbol of free trade, the CE Marking demonstrates a product meets the minimum consumer safety, health and environmental requirements as outlined by the European Directive.

The GS Mark is based on the “German Equipment Safety Act” (Geräte – und Produktsicherheitsgesetz), otherwise known as GPSG for short. Owned by the Federal Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs, the GS Mark proves the product’s full compliance with GPSG, showing that the product meets all electrical, chemical and ergonomic safety requirements.
