- Additional plus for 3rd party monitoring: Comprehensive assurance for you thanks to high-quality, recurring tests in our accredited laboratories. Functionally relevant defects, e.g. due to supplier changes, are directly detected. Your quality maintains top level at all times – with VdS, you are always on the safe side.
- For your devices or combinations you submit an application to the DIBt.
- Depending on the construction product, the DIBt requires a "consulting test report" for the issue of the applicability / proof of use certificate (aBG / abZ). You can order the tests required for this from us. We develop the individual test plan for your product in coordination with the DIBt.
- After the "general technical approval" (abZ) is granted, we carry out all necessary monitoring measures for you within the framework of external monitoring in accordance with DIN 18200:
- Initial inspection at the manufacturing plant, including verification of production control + sampling.
- Sample testing in the VdS laboratories, preparation of external monitoring report.
- Issuance of all required documents for control monitoring (like certificate of conformity)
- Regulations monitoring with testing of the samples.
(by the way: we also offer 3rd party surveillance separately for products that have already been approved – to the form).
- On the basis of the certificate, you can apply the national conformity "Ü" Mark.
The procedure is also explained in a DIBt video (from 2:05).
Validity of the national technical approval is usually 5 years (then an "application for renewal" is to be submitted – VdS services include timely informing you on all required steps).
