GS mark
GS means 'Geprufte Sicherheit' (security has been certified) in German and 'German Safety' (German security). GS certification is a voluntary certification based on the German Product Safety Act (GPGS) and tested according to the EU unified standard EN or the German industrial standard DIN. It is a recognized German safety certification mark in the European market.



sign

1. GS logo is a safety certification logo issued by TUV, VDE and other institutions authorized by the German Ministry of Labor.

GS logo is a safety logo accepted by European customers. Generally, GS certified products sell at higher unit prices and are more popular.

2. EC CE Regulation, 1997.1.1. Regulation of 'Low Voltage Directive (LVD)'. GS already contains all the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive (LVD). Therefore, after obtaining the GS logo, TUV will issue the CE certificate (COC) of LVD, TUV South Deutsche Group and TUV Rheinland's certificate after 1997, which includes the LVD Certificate in the GS certificate. The manufacturer applied for GS and obtained the LVD certificate at the same time.

3. Requirements of GS certification for products and documents: - Products must pass the type test of European safety standards. - The product structure should conform to the standard requirements. - Instructions (German, English) should meet the criteria. English documents such as Structural Diagram, Circuit Diagram and Parts List prepared according to TUV requirements will be tested according to the parameters provided in these documents.

4. GS certification has strict requirements on the factory quality assurance system. The factory should be examined and annually inspected: - Require the factory to establish its own quality assurance system according to ISO9000 system standards when delivering goods in batches. At least the factory should have its own quality control system, quality records and other documents and adequate production and inspection capabilities. Before issuing the GS certificate, the new factory should be examined and qualified before issuing the GS certificate. After issuing the certificate, the factory should be reviewed at least once a year. No matter how many GS labels are applied for by the factory, the factory only needs one inspection.

Introduction to German GS Certification

GS means 'Geprufte Sicherheit' (security has been certified) in German and 'German Safety' (German security). GS certification is a voluntary certification based on the German Product Safety Act (SGS) and tested according to the EU unified standard EN or the German industrial standard DIN. It is a recognized German safety certification mark in the European market.

The GS certification mark indicates that the safety of the product has been tested by an independent agency with credibility. GS certification mark, although not mandatory by law, can make manufacturers subject to strict German (European) product safety law when the product fails and causes accidents. Therefore, GS certification mark is a powerful market tool, which can enhance customer confidence and purchase desire. Although GS is a German standard, most European countries agree with it. Besides meeting the GS certification, the product will also meet the requirements of the CE logo of the European Community. Unlike CE, GS certification marks have no legal compulsory requirements, but because safety awareness has penetrated into ordinary consumers, a device with GS certification marks may have greater competitiveness in the market than ordinary products.

Products that can apply for GS certification:

Household appliances, such as refrigerators, washing machines, kitchen utensils, etc.

Household machinery.

Sports goods.

Household electronic equipment, such as audio-visual equipment.

Electrical and electronic office equipment, such as photocopiers, fax machines, shredders, computers, printers, etc.

Industrial machinery, experimental measuring equipment.

Other safety-related products such as bicycles, helmet, climbing ladders, furniture, etc.

The standard used in GS certification is the corresponding EN safety standard of EU.

GS certification is more stringent than CE certification of low voltage safety (LVD certification), with factory inspection and annual inspection, while CE-LVD does not need factory inspection and annual inspection.

Who can issue GS certificate?

(1) German Certification Agency: TUV RHEINLAND, TUV PRODUCT SERVICES, VDE and so on are generally well-known GS issuing institutions in Germany, which are directly recognized by Germany.

(2) Other certification bodies: Generally, KEMA, ITS, NEMKO and DEMKO are the other GS certification bodies cooperating with Germany in Europe.

Technological process

1) First meeting: Through the first meeting, the testing agency or agent will explain the specific procedures and standards of certification to the applicant's product engineer, and provide the required documentation form.

2) Application: The applicant submits the required documents. For electrical products, it is necessary to submit the general assembly drawing, electrical schematic diagram, material list, product use or installation instructions, and the difference between series models.

3) Technical meeting: After the testing institution has checked the applicant's documents, it will arrange technical meeting with the applicant's technicians.

4) Sample testing: The testing will be conducted in accordance with applicable standards and can be carried out in the manufacturer's laboratory or in any laboratory of an inspection institution stationed in a country.

5) Inspection of factories: GS certification requires safety-related procedural inspections of production sites.

6) issue GS certificate.

Effect

The GS logo indicates that the safety of the product has been tested by an independent agency with credibility. The GS logo, although not mandatory by law, does enable manufacturers to be bound by strict German (European) product safety laws in case of accidents caused by product failures. Therefore, GS logo is a powerful market tool, which can enhance customer confidence and purchase desire. Although GS is a German standard, most European countries agree with it. Besides meeting the GS certification, the product will also meet the requirements of the CE logo of the European Community. Unlike CE, GS logo does not have legal compulsory requirements, but because safety awareness has penetrated into ordinary consumers, a GS logo of electrical appliances in the market may have greater competitiveness than ordinary products.

advantage

1. GS, as a sign of product safety and quality reliability, has been widely recognized by German and EU consumers.

2. Minimizing the responsibility risk of producers in product quality;

3. Enhance manufacturers'confidence in product quality, safety and compliance with legal requirements;

4. Emphasize to consumers the obligations of producers on product quality and safety.

5. The manufacturer can ensure to the end user that the product with GS logo passes the test of the third party testing organization.

6. In many cases, the quality and safety of products labeled with GS exceed the level required by law.

7. GS logo can obtain higher recognition than CE logo, because GS certificate is issued by a third-party testing organization with certain qualifications.

relationship

EC CE Regulation, 1997.1.1. Regulation of 'Low Voltage Directive (LVD)'. GS already contains all the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive (LVD). Therefore, after obtaining the GS logo, TUV will issue the CE certificate (COC) of LVD, TUV South Deutsche Group and TUV Rheinland's certificate after 1997, which includes the LVD Certificate in the GS certificate. The manufacturer applied for GS and obtained the LVD certificate at the same time.
