GS Safety approval on Power Supply Units

GS means "Geprufte Sicherheit" in German (safety has been certified). GS certification is based on the German Product Safety Law (SGS) and is a voluntary certification for testing in accordance with the EU unified standard EN or German industrial standard DIN. It is a recognized German safety certification mark in the European market.

  GS mark indicates that the safety of the product has been tested by an independent organization with credibility. Although the GS mark is not a legally mandatory requirement, it can indeed make the manufacturer subject to strict German (European) product safety laws when the product fails and causes an accident. Therefore, the GS logo is a powerful marketing tool that can enhance customers' confidence and desire to buy. Although GS is a German standard, most European countries accepted. And while meeting the GS certification, the products will also meet the requirements of the European Community CE marking. Unlike CE, there is no legal requirement for the GS mark, but the safety awareness has penetrated into consumers, an electrical appliance with the GS mark may be more competitive in the market than another products.

The European Community CE regulations, 1997.1.1. began to control "Low Voltage Directive (LVD)". GS already contains all the requirements of the "Low Voltage Directive (LVD)". Therefore, after obtaining the GS mark, TUV will issue the CE certificate (COC) of LVD without any charge. After 1997, TUV Rheinland's certificate includes the LVD certificate into the GS certificate, that is, the manufacturer obtained the LVD certificate when applying for GS.
