About us

The VDE Mark is a worldwide symbol for safety and quality in electrical devices, components and systems. Since 1920, the Association for Electrical, Electronic and Information Technology has issued the VDE mark to give consumers, manufacturers and installers the possibility to identify safe products that meet national and international standards along with legal directives.

The VDE Institute is a company belonging to the VDE Association, one of Europe’s largest technical-scientific associations and thus, a part of a unique worldwide platform of experts for science, standardization and product testing – which our customers benefit from as well. Our experts annually subject more than 100,000 electrical components, devices and systems to comprehensive and neutral testing. They are tested for safety, electromagnetic compatibility and additional product characteristics. We possess worldwide know-how thanks to our decades of experience.
