The success story of the TÜV NORD GROUP has its roots in the traditional boiler inspection associations founded by the industry that voluntarily obligated themselves to begin monitoring and ensuring the operational safety of boilers in 1869. Gradually, the government gave the DÜV, later known as the TÜV (Technical Inspection Association) additional safety-related tasks such as the general inspection of automobiles, which is now synonymous with certified traffic safety.
