-Independent technical services leader now authorized to test safety shoes, primary batteries and toilet seats

JAKARTA, Indonesia , Aug. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- TUV Rheinland, a global leader in independent technical services, has been appointed by Indonesia's Ministry of Industry to provide three new Indonesia National Standard (SNI) certifications covering safety shoes, primary batteries and toilet seats. The recognition of TUV Rheinland by Indonesian National Accreditation body (KAN) will support the government's efforts to ensure product quality and protect the safety of customers.

There are 126 SNI categories in total, each covering a different product sector. In addition to protective equipment like helmets and safety shoes, they also include a host of household appliances, such as washing machines, refrigerators and irons, as well as other kitchen equipment. Electrical components, such as PVC cables, power cables up to 1-3 kV, plugs and sockets, and lighting products like self-ballasted lamps, LED and fluorescent lamps are also required to meet SNI specifications.

Safety Shoes

When it comes to safety equipment, failure is not an option. TUV Rheinland puts them through all the paces required to conform to the stringent SNI certification. This ranges from practical performance issues, such as evaluating the raw materials, checking on construction of the uppers, inner and outer soles and sides, as well as organoleptic considerations.

Certifications include:

  • SNI 0111: 2009: Safety leather shoes with molded, vulcanized rubber soles
  • SNI 7037: 2009: Leather safety shoes using the Goodyear welt system
  • SNI 7079:2009: Leather safety shoes with polyurethane and thermoplastic polyurethane injection molded soles

Primary Batteries

Primary, or non-rechargeable batteries, are subject to a variety of considerations before they can be put on the market and sold to customers. TUV Rheinland helps at almost every stage of the process, from design to production.

Part 1 covers general requirements for SNI 04-2051.1-2004. Part 2 includes physical and electrical specifications for SNI 04-2051.2-2004

Toilets

All toilets are not necessarily created equal. Apart from key factors such as size, there are a myriad of details to consider. TUV Rheinland's comprehensive certification regime covers dimensions as well as quality considerations, including appearance as well as resistance to temperature, chemicals, staining and cracking.

The SNI 03-0797-2006 standard for toilets includes things like the whirlpool flushing action, floor mounted and wall mounted models.

Mr. Holger Kunz, Executive Vice President Products at TUV Rheinland believes that the new SNI certification is important because quality is a must-have for any product.

"People are always on the lookout for high-quality products at a reasonable price. Certifications, such as Indonesia's SNI, are one of the best ways to provide buyers with a way to be certain that they are actually paying for quality that will last a long time and operate safely," said Mr. Kunz.

His views are echoed by Mr. Nyoman Susila, Managing Director of TUV Rheinland Indonesia.

"TUV Rheinland has always invested heavily in the people and facilities required to help manufacturers test and verify that their products adhere to local, regional and global standards, so that they can be successful in any market they choose to enter," said Mr. Nyoman.
