Safety life cycle


This way of working offers many advantages: with the help of the experienced experts from TÜV NORD CERT, companies can fulfil statutory requirements, further raise the safety level of their products and efficiently minimise residual risks. You gain confidence in making decisions regarding structures, design procedures and tools, whilst functional safety standards are integrated into the existing quality management system in the best possible way.

Thanks to verification of development outputs at an early stage, it is possible to reduce development times and costs. In addition, certification by TÜV NORD CERT enhances image and raises company profiles in the competitive market.
