CEOC member VdTÜV celebrates its 125th anniversary

German Federal President Horst Köhler underlined in his keynote speech the importance of independent third-party testing and certification.

The history of the German federation of the TÜVs goes back 125 years, when the Prussian federation of the pressure vessel inspection associations was founded.

Speeches were held by VdTÜV president Dr. Guido Rettig and Prof. Dr. Dr. h.c. Anton Kathrein (Kathrein-Werke KG) illustrating the important and fruitful partnership between industry and third-party testing organisations.

The VdTÜV also announced its support to educating engineers at the University of the Great Lakes in Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo.
