.. our RWTÜV house is prepared for the 150th anniversary.

Highlight yesterday

In April 1872, the Dampfkesselüberwachungsverein in den Industriebezirken Lenne, Sieg und Dill e.V., renamed DÜV zu Siegen e.V. in 1899, began its work. The foundation stone for 150 years in the service of safety, value awareness and research was laid!

Highlight yesterday

The inspectors of the DÜV and later TÜV have never seen themselves as mere observers. It was and still is a matter of course for them to conduct their own research in order to improve testing processes and to provide impulses - i.e. their own sparks! - to be able to contribute impulses.

Highlight today & tomorrow

Best practice example 5G - from development support to certification regime.


RWTÜV awards EUR 150,000 in prizes for innovative business ideas to mark its 150th anniversary.
