What would be the use of immortality to a person who cannot use well a half an hour? - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Product Consulting, GS Mark
 
  1. What is GS Mark?
    The GS mark, based on German Safety Law, is widely recognized throughout Europe. It will differentiate your product and provide a strategic marketing advantage to help sell more products. It is particularly important for the German market and independent market research shows that German consumers demand and will pay more for products bearing this certification mark.

    The GS Mark, although strictly voluntary, is highly regarded by German consumers and manufacturers alike. Products not bearing the mark are nearly impossible to sell in Germany. The GS Mark lends itself as a powerful marketing tool throughout Europe because it symbolizes safety and quality, and instills a strong sense of confidence among consumers.


  2. Why GS marking ?
    Any electrical, mechanical or electro-mechanical product bearing the GS Mark indicates that it was tested and complies with the minimum requirements of the German Equipment and Product Safety Act (a.k.a. GPSG). The GS Mark, which stands for Geprüfte Sicherheit in German and means Safety Tested, is a licensed mark of the German government and may only be issued by an accredited product safety testing and certification agency. A GS mark issued by Intertek will carry its "S Mark" identifier above the mark.
