The DEKRA SEAL for safety and quality

A symbol you can trust


The DEKRA Seal is issued to companies, products or persons that have officially met and are compliant with defined standards, such as those concerning safety, quality or sustainability. It’s a clear, transparent proof of performance from an independent and neutral body. The DEKRA Seal reliability and transparency are highly important to DEKRA. Therefore, the criteria used are clearly stated in our DEKRA Seal database.

Test criteria can include:

  • Requirements by national and/or international laws or standards

  • Technical regulations, industry standards, professional associations regulations

  • DEKRA standards: standards defined by DEKRA in fields in which there are no appropriate existing specifications or guidelines, or where existing regulations are exceeded
