Now Protected Worldwide!
TÜV is one of the best known brands in Germany. Surveys also keep confirming this. The three letters stands for safety, reliability, and neutrality. This is ensured by the TÜV organizations not only in Germany but throughout the world.
To indicate to our customers instantly the superior level of the professional services and the verifiable standards they may expect from us, only those companies may use the trademark of TÜV for which it has been protected. Brands need to be protected in the interest of the customers and of the company. Like all other TÜV companies, TÜV Hessen, in cooperation with the association of TÜV companies VdTÜV (Verband der Technischen Überwachungs-Vereine e.V.), is painstakingly concerned about preserving and reinforcing the protection of TÜV as a trademark.
Due to its registrations with the German Patent and Trademark Office (Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt, DPMA), the Office of Harmonization in the Internal Market (OHIM) as well as numerous foreign brand offices, TÜV is a trademark that enjoys protection almost worldwide. Therefore the trademark of TÜV is the distinguishing mark of the TÜV companies. It may only be used by a TÜV or a TÜV subsidiary.
