GS is the abbreviation of German "geprüfte Sicherheit" (safety certified), and the GS mark is a German voluntary safety mark; but it is highly valued by consumers. Many products, including home appliances, lamps, audio and video products, communication products, office equipment, power tools, electronic toys, electronic measuring instruments, etc., are difficult to sell in Germany or surrounding areas without the GS mark. The GS mark indicates that the safety of the product has been tested by a credible independent agency. The GS mark, although not required by law, does make the manufacturer subject to strict German (European) product safety laws in the event of an accident caused by product failure. Therefore, the GS logo is a powerful marketing tool that can enhance customer confidence and desire to buy. Although GS is a German standard, most countries in Europe agree. And meet the GS certification at the same time, the product will also meet the requirements of the European Community's CE mark. Unlike CE, there is no legal requirement for the GS mark, but because the safety awareness has penetrated into ordinary consumers, an electrical appliance with the GS mark will be more competitive than ordinary products in the market.

GS standard basis
GS certification is a voluntary certification based on the German product safety law and tested in accordance with the European Union's unified standard EN or German industrial standard DIN. It is a German safety certification mark recognized in the European market. The GS test of electrical products is tested according to the corresponding safety standards for different products. Most of the test contents are similar to CE/LVD. Some products are also tested with the safety requirements of Germany, and the requirements are more stringent. According to the ZEK 01-08 document, since April 1, 2008, products applying for GS certification must be assessed for PAHs to comply with regulatory requirements and avoid health hazards. This mandatory requirement applies to all materials that may contain PAHs that come into contact with the human body or are placed in the oral cavity under normal use or reasonably expected misuse.
GS issuing agency
(1) German certification agency: Usually well-known domestic GS certification agencies in Germany include TUV, VDE, etc., which are GS certification agencies directly recognized by Germany.
(2) Other certification bodies: Usually other GS certification bodies in Europe that cooperate with Germany include ITS, SGS, KEMA, ITS, NEMKO, DEMKO, etc.
