VdS-Schadenverhuetung Technische Pruefstelle

Technical Inspection Service

With more than 100 years of experience, we have set ourselves the goal of ensuring and improving the safety of fire protection systems.

Today, the Technical Inspection Body has a unique infrastructure for testing all types of fire protection systems, which we assess on the basis of European and international standards.

It makes no difference whether the fire protection system was planned and installed on the basis of VdS guidelines, national and international standards such as NFPA guidelines or FM Global data sheets. In Germany, VdS is the first and currently the only state-accredited testing body for stationary automatic fire protection systems (in accordance with ISO 17020 by the DAkkS).

Our experts assess more than 30,000 fire protection systems worldwide every year, giving them extensive knowledge of current technological trends, which we actively help to shape through our work and to which we apply national and international standards.

Our unique offering enables our customers to rely on our expertise for planning, installation, commissioning and monitoring, which naturally also includes compliance with regulatory and insurance requirements.

Our team is constantly working on developing new technologies, optimizing test procedures and improving processes. Our experts are specialists in the field of belt protection testing and set the highest standards in terms of safety, quality and reliability.
