Cologne/Germany, October 1st 2020. The VdS certification body bundles 112 years of loss prevention experience and German engineering skills in comprehensive practical testing. Approved components and systems are fully compatible with NFPA installation standards and are accepted by authorities around the world. The “General Headquarter Command of Civil Defense” of the United Arab Emirates has now extended its listing of VdS-approved products to also include gas extinguishing technology.
“The VdS Quality Seal proves highest effectiveness and reliability directly at first sight”, emphasizes Gunnar Bellingen, head of the VdS fire protection laboratories. “We are delighted about this renewed appreciation by the UAE ministries, which underlines the fully reliable services of both our test engineers and the approved manufacturers in the entire world”.
