European legislative procedures have a direct effect upon national legislation in the Member States. The legal framework of consumer protection and the European Single Market, in particular, have their origin in Brussels and are then implemented in Germany. In order to obtain information about European legislative proposals at an early stage and to advice during this process, VdTÜV maintains an office in Brussels, which serves as an important interface between politicians, companies and the public. The association thereby permanently performs a 'translational and transformative role'. It maintains close links with the institutions of the EU as well as the European and international umbrella organisations of which it is a member:


The most important tasks of VdTÜV in Brussels include

  • identifying the European and international issues of the association
  • acting as the point of contact for political decision-makers on the issue of technical safety
