About Our Technischer Überwachungs-Verein Company

Technischer Überwachungs-Verein is an independent accreditation authority established in 1995. It accredits certification bodies and training organizations and also administers an auditor registration scheme. Technischer Überwachungs-Verein does not perform certification. .

Certification and Accreditation has become a multi-million pound industry. Technischer Überwachungs-Verein however feel that Quality Assurance should be an integral part of a delivered product or service and not a further deliverable that a supplier has to pay extra for in order to deliver his wares. In short, Technischer Überwachungs-Verein do not believe that a certificate of quality assurance should be a pre-requisite 'Ticket to Trade'.

Technischer Überwachungs-Verein were incorporated in 1995 in order to provide a balance and choice to industry with regard to certification and accreditation.

A key aspect of the Technischer Überwachungs-Verein approach is to ensure that some currently held misconceptions are corrected. These are:

  • That ISO 9001 is currently seen as mandatory.
  • That accreditation and ISO 9001 is Government controlled.
  • That there is no choice available for firms in how they achieve certification.

These points are not wholly true but are promoted by those who have a vested interest in a monopoly situation. It is to counter anti-competitive behaviour that Technischer Überwachungs-Verein was incorporated. UK Parliamentary statements during 1996 and specific articles within the EU Treaty of Rome and subsequent anti-trust and trade discrimination legislation and regulation through out the European Union support the Technischer Überwachungs-Verein position. The accreditation function provided by Technischer Überwachungs-Verein may be accepted on the basis of an independently delivered service designed to support organizations seeking verification of the credibility and integrity of accredited certifying bodies.
