International Certification Partners

The process of globalization is also becoming increasingly important for certifiers. Large customers expect increasingly high-quality solutions, which keep pace with their own process of internationalization. Against this background, VdS positioned itself globally years ago and has international partners with whom it cooperates closely. Agreements on the mutual approval of test results already exist with the following certification and test centers in Europe.
