Forged Certificates

Forged Certificates

TÜV is one of the best-known trademarks in Germany and also enjoys a very good reputation on an international scale. The trademark has become synonymous with safety, reliability, trust and neutrality and has a high marketing value for the holders of the certificates and certification marks. That is also why our certificates and certification marks are often forged.

The subsequent list shows you the forgeries known to us – without any claim to completeness. Should you have doubts about the authenticity of a TÜV Saarland certificate or certification mark, you can do a check in our certificate database. You can also contact us at any time – we will be pleased to help.

Prosecution of forgeries and misuse of the TÜV trademark

The TÜV mark is the trademark of the TÜV organisations and may only be used by them or their TÜV subsidiaries. Like all well-known trademarks, the TÜV trademark is also misused either due to lack of knowledge or due to a wilful act. We have made it our task to support rightful holders and to point out the correct use of the TÜV trademark and to take uncompromising action against intentional misuse of our trademark. That is also the reason why we are a member of the TÜV Trademark Association (TÜV Markenverbund  e.V.) based in Berlin. It is an association founded by the Technical Inspection Associations in 2010.It supports its members in the protection of their rights to the TÜV trademark to ensure trademark value retention through global and permanent monitoring.
