China-mark, an excellent sign of German quality

Manufacturers are facing a sizeable challenge in the Chinese market, with consumers increasingly caring about product quality and safety.

As a leading technical service provider, TÜV Rheinland knows the consumers' concern and the pressures that manufacturers are taking, thus we have developed the China-mark as a form of voluntary product certification.

TÜV Rheinland’s China-mark ensures the safety, performance and quality of technical equipment, commercial goods and consumer goods that have been inspected and certified. The purpose of it is to protect consumers' personal and property safety, maintain consumers' interests, improve the product quality and increase the product competitiveness.

There are two types of China-mark, a certified mark and an inspected mark, which can be applied according to clients’ needs.
