Eye Protection

For us, the testing and assessment of eye protection equipment has a long tradition. DIN CERTCO has been testing and assessing eye protection equipment already since 1935 (at that time still as part of the DIN German Institute for Standardisation e.V.) and is today the competent contact partner for industry and commerce. The DIN CERTCO Testing Centre for Eye Protection in Nuremberg (PZA) is among the world's leading institutions for the testing and certification of eye protectors of all kinds.

As an eye protection manufacturer, you would like to establish your products within the single European market. As an international service provider, we can assist you with our testing and certification marks, which stand for safety and quality.

Our clients benefit from our expertise and from our many years of experience in eye protection. As a member of the TÜV Rheinland Group, we also have access to an international network, which allows us to extend our knowledge continuously and to put it to use for your benefit.

With over 1000 client-specific product tests and certifications a year in the areas of eye protection and optical products speak for us and our competence.
