TÜV NORD China forms part of the TÜV NORD GROUP, with a workforce of more than 10,000, we are one of the world's largest technical service providers.
Safety, reliability, neutrality - the TÜV brand enjoys an excellent reputation globally among customers and business partners. The TÜV NORD GROUP has also committed itself to providing "Excellence for your Business". TÜV® is a registered trademark of the TÜV organizations and the TÜV Association e.V. (VdTÜV). It is the hallmark of the TÜV companies and may only be used by a German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV) or a TÜV subsidiary company. All over the world it stands for safety, reliability, neutrality. The TÜV NORD GROUP supplements the three attributes above with internationality, quality, responsibility, future orientation and excellence. The brand's roots are the traditional Dampfkessel Überwachungsvereinen (DÜV - Steam Boiler Monitoring Associations), which were subsequently renamed the German Technical Inspection Agency (TÜV). From 1869 on, the DÜV began to monitor the operational safety of steam boilers independently and professionally. The state transferred additional safety-related tasks step-by-step to the DÜV – for example the general roadworthiness test (MOT) of motor vehicles. In order to guarantee the value of the brand over the long term, the German Technical Inspection Agencies established the TÜV Markenverbund ("Brand Network") e.V. in 2010, whose headquarters are in Berlin. The brand network supports its members in exercising its rights to the TÜV brand. Learn more about the history and responsibility of the TÜV NORD GROUP.

The success of TÜV NORD GROUP is rooted in traditional steam boiler inspection organizations (DÜV). In 1869, these organizations made a voluntary commitment to undertake expert independent inspection of steam boilers in order to guarantee their safety. Step by step, the state transferred further safety-related tasks to these organizations, which later became known as technical inspection associations (TÜV); one particularly important area was the periodic inspection of motor vehicles.
Since the very first test of a steam boiler, TÜV NORD GROUP has developed step by step into the international technology service provider that it is today. With its acquisition of DMT and ALTER TECHNOLOGY Group, TÜV NORD GROUP has also gained a unique position in the areas of natural resources and aerospace.
