Press Release 30/2023

Cologne/Germany, November 20th, 2023. As a founding member of the European Fire and Security Group, VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH is also committed to the highest standards in certification and conformity assessment at the European level. With a brand relaunch, the association of European certification bodies now highlights the advantages for its clients from the fire protection and security sector. The repositioning primarily includes a new logo, an expressive colour scheme and the completely revised website as a central information platform. In addition to an expanded content offering, customer documents, such as registration forms, certification documents or customer guides, can be found there with a new logo and in an updated design.

Network for security, trustworthiness, reliability

"The aim of the revamped brand identity is to make EFSG more visible, to bring it closer to the relevant sectors and, in doing so, to emphasise its values – security, trustworthiness and reliability," explains Thomas Urban, Managing Director of VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH. "In the newly designed logo, for example, the globe symbol is a reminder of the international approval of the certifications issued by EFSG members and the importance of their collaborative work."

EFSG enables efficient, transnational certification

EFSG is the association of established certification bodies in Europe working in the fields of fire protection and security. Its members have many years of experience in their respective sectors and enjoy the trust of the professional community. They have set themselves the common goal of raising and harmonising the security and safety level of products for fire protection and security, as well as physical security and burglar alarms. To this end, they facilitate independent third-party certification in different countries at a lower cost. With the worldwide approved and recognised testing and certification expertise of its members, the EFSG enables manufacturers to accelerate market access, reduce costs and achieve universally approved quality assurance.
