Confidence is good – “DIN-Geprüft einbruchhemmend” is better!

The mark „DIN-Geprüft einbruchhemmend“ is the quality proof, which implies that the product entirely complies with the recommended standards, and the manufacturer is subjected to an independent and regular monitoring. This certification mark creates confidence to the customer that an independent, neutral and competent body has carefully examined and evaluated the test criteria.

Here you can find an up-to-date list of all approved certificate holders for burglar-resistant products.

Your key to the police recommended manufacturer directories

In order to make their houses safe, the customers trust the products, which are recommended and listed by the police in the so called manufacturer directories for tested and certified burglar-resistant products. They are published on behalf of the Central Office of the Commission for Criminal Prevention (KPK), by the Bavarian State Bureau for Criminal Investigation (BLKA).

The directories include manufacturers whose products were successfully tested in accordance with the standard and were certified by an accredited certification body. The consistently high quality of the products is regularly monitored by third parties. Your data are submitted to the BLKA twice a year. That's how consumers will find out about you.

DIN CERTCO guides you through the process and will register you and your certified products in the relevant manufacturer directory.

Our mark creates trust.

Certification

DIN-Geprüft is the quality mark for the tested and monitored conformity of a product with the respective requirements contained in the DIN or DIN EN standards.

The certification process follows the respective certification scheme (see tab “documents”). It defines all requirements on product, documentation and factory production control as well as sampling and testing conditions.

Once the tests have been passed successfully, DIN CERTCO issues a certificate that is valid for 5 years. This certificate can then be extended by further 5 years based on a regular monitoring of the production facilities.

Certificate holders are allowed to use the DIN-mark combined with its registration number in any kind of their communication media and publications.
