The Intertek GS Mark in New Design
July 01, 2009
Today Intertek formally introduced the new design of its GS Mark. After the 1st July 2009, all new GS Certificates issued by Intertek will use the new Mark. There is no change in the regulations or processes required to obtain this certification. Certificates issued before the 1st July 2009 will continue to be valid. As long as they are valid, Intertek asks clients to use the “old” GS Mark on their product, in the user manual, on packaging and on product advertising. Clients should use the version of the GS Mark, which is printed on the certificate.
The new Intertek GS Mark has the Intertek logo on the left side and the familiar GS Logo on the right side. It is recommended that the Mark is printed in black or in blue. Alternatively, another contrasting colour combination may be selected.
The GS Mark confirms that a product complies with the German Equipment and Product Safety Act. Certification creates significant advantages for product marketing and helps minimize product liability risks.
Falko Hocke, Head of Certification, Intertek Deutschland GmbH, stated: "Intertek changed the GS Mark design to better leverage the Intertek brand and our reputation for Quality and Safety. We believe this change, combined with systematic marketing program will increase the profile of the Intertek GS Mark on the European Market.”
