About VdTÜV

VdTÜV (Association of Technical Inspection Agencies) advocates technical safety and trust in products, plants and services by independent testing in Berlin and Brussels. Its members are the TÜV organisations as well as industrial companies which are affiliated with the objectives and tasks of the association. With its positions on safety in the industrialised society, on mobility as well as on products and services, VdTÜV is a sought-after contact for politicians, companies, associations and authorities. The Association is committed to adapting rules and standards to the latest technological standards at all times.

VdTÜV in Brussels

European legislative procedures have a direct effect upon national legislation in the Member States. The legal framework of consumer protection and the European Single Market, in particular, have their origin in Brussels and are then implemented in Germany. In order to obtain information about European legislative proposals at an early stage and to advice during this process, VdTÜV maintains an office in Brussels, which serves as an important interface between politicians, companies and the public. The Association thereby permanently performs a “translational and transformative role”.

Joint Position VdTÜV and DEKRA: New Approaches to Vehicle and Road Safety

VdTÜV and DEKRA welcome the EU Commission’s proposal for a Regulation on type-approval requirements for motor vehicles and their trailers (COM/2018/286 final) dated 17 May 2018. The aim of the reform is to increase road safety and reduce the number of fatalities and severe injuries caused by accidents. The draft Regulation proposes far-reaching improvements in the field of active and passive safety. For example, new vehicles are to be equipped with automated braking and lane-keeping systems. New crash testing requirements are also planned.
