We protect lives, goods and natural resources. We achieve this by offering services in testing, inspection, certification, engineering and training.

People are the focus of everything we do. Promoting our specialists and working in mixed teams are two goals firmly anchored in our Guiding Principles. We continuously improve knowledge transfer across all areas in the effort to develop the best solutions.


Expertise worldwide, services on site. That’s what we do.

Since our foundation 150 years ago, we have been the global byword for security and trust. As a knowledge-based company, we have digital networking firmly in mind. Whether engineers, IT security experts or professionals for the mobility of tomorrow: Our 14,000 employees in over 100 countries ensure that our customers become even more successful.

Our Guiding Principles

Personal drive, a broad horizon of knowledge and the desire to provide excellent performance: the employees of the TÜV NORD GROUP face up to global challenges every day in order to support their customers conscientiously and with foresight.

More than 70 per cent of all employees within the TÜV NORD GROUP have an academic education, mainly as technicians, engineers and scientists.
This knowledge is supplemented by skills in commerce, crafts and the humanities, which also provide a comprehensive view of the questions posed by our customers.

Traditional TÜV activities such as mobility, energy, the environment, training and health are supplemented by the business fields of natural resources, IT and aerospace. The TÜV NORD GROUP is therefore successful in providing its customers with integrated support and ensuring their success. With a clear external view and the objectivity which the name TÜV NORD GROUP promises.

Our clients are varied. They range from global players to regionally or locally oriented small and medium-sized enterprises. Furthermore, numerous organisations and institutions decide in favour of working together with the TÜV NORD GROUP, for example the World Bank, the European Commission, the European Space Agency and the German Federal Environment Agency.
