Product safety

Our daily life is marked by interaction with a wide range of products. The core concern of product safety is therefore the protection of consumers and employees from products which jeopardise their health and safety.

In Germany, the Product Safety Act and its specific regulations were issued for the safety of technical equipment, products and plants. The federal states are responsible for its enforcement. The aim is to ensure a high level of safety for the placing of products on the market. The regulations associated with the legal Product Act specify requirements for safe and compliant products such as e. g. low-voltage devices, pressure equipment and machinery, but also children's toys.
