Abschnitt 3.5 – 3.5 Use and Publication of Test Reports, Certificates and Marks

Certificates remain the property of the certification body.

Test and audit reports and certificates may only be used in full with indication of the date of issue and, if appropriate, the date of expiry. The use of a test report or the name of DGUV Test/the Testing and Certification Body for advertising purposes is subject to prior written consent. If test and audit reports and certificates are made available to third parties, the documents must be reproduced in their entirety. Separate use of the DAkkS Symbol and of DGUV Test logos is not permitted.

No misleading information shall be provided regarding the certification and its coverage. In particular, the certification may not be used in any way that could bring the certification body into disrepute. The Certificate Holder may not make any statements about the certification that the certification body could consider misleading or unjustified.

The following may be advertised using certificates or marks:

  • a product certificate or test mark may be used solely for the named product;

  • a certificate or mark for a QM System may be used solely for that certified system;

  • a certificate or mark for a process may only be used for that certified process.

The Applicant agrees to undertake any form of advertising or other statements in commercial transactions solely with valid certificates and to refrain from any form of advertising or statement based on invalid, expired or suspended certificates. The right to use the certificates and marks expires when the certificate becomes invalid. If the certificate has been revoked or suspended, the Certificate Holder may no longer use a mark or advertise with it. If the scope of the certificate has been reduced, all promotional materials shall be adjusted accordingly.

Certificates are issued to specific holders. Use by other persons or enterprises is not permitted. Certificates for products are also product-related, i.e. they may be used solely for the product tested and only by the Certificate Holder.

Additional Provisions for Test Marks for Products (GS Mark, DGUV Test Mark, Eurotest Mark)

A GS Certificate conferred upon an application submitted by the manufacturer or the manufacturer‘s authorized representative entitles its holder to affix the GS Mark to those products that conform to the type tested (see Annex 1 for a reproduction of the GS Mark).

Upon receipt of a DGUV Test Certificate or approval to use the mark, the Certificate Holder becomes entitled to use the DGUV Test Mark (see Annex 1 for a reproduction of the DGUV Test Mark). The DGUV Test Mark may if necessary be provided with a supplement according to the information indicated on the certificate.

GS Marks and DGUV Test Marks shall be designed and affixed such that they cannot be removed without being destroyed.

Seals or print templates for GS Marks and DGUV Test Marks are available from the print services companies authorized by the secretariat of DGUV Test. 3) Any deviation from the seals/print templates according to sentence 1 is subject to the prior written consent of the Testing and Certification Body.

Upon the Certificate Holder’s request, inclusion of the certificate number in the GS Mark and the DGUV Test Mark may be waived by the Testing and Certification Body where justified.

The GS Marks and/or DGUV Test Marks shall be affixed, as far as possible, next to the company logo or nameplate.

The Certificate Holder may not use the GS Mark or the DGUV Test Mark or advertise with it if the Testing and Certification Body has revoked or suspended the certificate or if the certificate is invalid for other reasons. DGUV Test monitors the legality of use of the marks and may inform other offices/bodies and the public accordingly.

Additional Provisions on Labelling under the Responsibility of a Notified Body

If EU legislation allows labeling under the responsibility of a notified body (e. g. EC Marine Equipment Directive), the Applicant acquires the right, upon issuance of an EC Type-Examination Certificate, to affix the relevant conformity labelling of the Directive to those products conforming to the type tested.

Seals or print templates for the labelling are available from the print services companies authorized by the secretariat of DGUV Test. 4) Any deviation from the seals/print templates according to sentence 1 is subject to the prior written consent of the Testing and Certification Body.

Supplementary Provisions for QM Marks

Upon issuance of the certificate for a QM System, the Certificate Holder is authorized to use the QM Mark conferred by DGUV Test (see Annex 1 for a reproduction of the QM Mark).

The QM Mark enables the Certificate Holder to indicate in its correspondence and advertising that the Certificate Holder’s products/services are manufactured/provided in a company whose QM System has been certified by DGUV Test.

The QM Mark may not be used to label individual products. Nor may it be used in conjunction with the manufactured products in a manner that permits the conclusion that the products (or services) are also certified. In cases in which a certificate for the products has also been issued, the product certification may only be identified in other ways (see GS Marks, DGUV Test Marks). Likewise, the QM Mark may not be used for laboratory test reports, calibration certificates or inspection reports.

If the QM System of the company as a whole has not been certified, but, rather, only a division, production area or specific area of the manufacturing site, the QM Mark may be used solely for the certified area. In cases of doubt the certified area shall be indicated together with the QM Mark.

The QM Mark may only be used together with the name of the Certificate Holder.
