Internal BOLD MOVE project

 

 

Dear all,


Customer requirements on TÜV NORD as a certification and testing services provider have changed enormously in the last few years. With the aim of meeting the new requirements, an internal project entitled "Customer-Focused Organisation" ("BOLD MOVE") was initiated in 2015 in the Industrial Services business unit. The pilot phase will be launched in 2017 with five operative business segments (OBS): Nuclear, Renewables, Rail, Food/Agriculture and System Certification.

You can find out more about BOLD MOVE and other issues in this edition of the International Newsletter.

We hope you enjoy reading it! As always, your input on our output is very much appreciated. Please get in touch with us; you can find our address in the footer.

TÜV brand code: If TÜV is on it, then TÜV must be in it

The TÜV brand enjoys almost unparalleled name recognition, especially in Germany. It is the epitome of safety, integrity and neutrality and has developed such strength over the decades that TÜV and TÜV NORD have become synonymous with reliability and trust. In order to protect this precious asset, all the TÜV organisations joined forces three years ago to develop a brand code which lays down binding conditions for the use of the TÜV brand.
