Since July 2019, TÜV Nederland has established the Keurmerk Refurbished (Quality Mark Refurbished). It is a quality mark that companies can receive after an investigation into te company and their refurbishing process. The quality mark guarantees the buyer that the product is in fact of the quality that is stated. This results in carefree shopping and more security.
The complete process of refurbishing is tested. TÜV tests for security, quality, trustworthiness, and workplace surroundings such as certifications, inspections, CE-marks and training of the technical specialists.
The quality mark also guarantees uniformity in the product conditions. TÜV has set the standard for the three different product conditions, to which all companies have to comply. These conditions are used, as good as new, minor visible cosmetic wear and clearly visible cosmetic wear.
