Certifications for Products and Companies

Safety and trust through certification.

Certifications verify the safety of products and ensure that they do not pose a threat to the people who use them. Thanks to certifications, the safety of products is examined and garanteed. For distributing certain products within the European Union, certification through a Notified Body can be required. European directives define the safety criteria that the products must meet.

In addition, companies can have their management systems certified, such as a quality management system in accordance with the ISO 9001 certification standard. A certified management system that defines processes in the company to achieve certain goals is often a prerequisite for obtaining public contracts.

Frequent certification requests

These types of certifications are frequently requested from testxchange and are only a small selection. We support companies every day with certification projects of all kinds.

Certification according to the EU Medical Device Directive

A particularly important area for safety in the medical sector is the certification of medical devices, which is clearly defined in the EU and regulated by law. Medical products are certified in accordance with the EU Medical Devices Directive MDR, which replaces the previously valid EU Directives 93/42 / EEC and 90/385 / EEC (for implantable medical devices). In a so-called conformity assessment procedure, medical products are classified based on their risk potential for patients and users.

Certification according to 2009/48/EG

Another example of regulated authorization through certification is the verification of the safety of children's toys. In the EU this is regulated in the Toy Safety Directive 2009/48 / EC and in the US in the Children's Product Certificate (CPC). Since children need special protection against dangers, these EU directives define safety standards to test product characteristics such as flammability, chemical properties or adequate hygiene properties. Only after a valid certification procedure children's toys may be placed on the market.
