    Our product testing and certification experts build loyal partnerships through their relentless passion for product safety and connectivity. Our customers rely on us not only for our trusted certificates, but also to help them consider all the safety aspects of every single component. We do so every step of the way, until a product reaches its destination.

    In a connected world, your product doesn’t just have to work – it has to work with everything else too. Our smart combination of safety and connectivity testing gives you the edge in a future where nothing on the road, at work, and at home works alone. That’s what makes DEKRA your partner for a safe connected world.

  • Three key areas of life

    Safety is a core need for everyone. We know that many accidents can be avoided. Therefore, we concentrate on the three key areas of life: on the road, at work and at home.

  • On the Road


    Our roads are becoming smarter. Technological developments are making mobility more connected, more automated and more energy efficient. How do we keep our increasingly mobile world safe? Safe is a car that smartly adapts to the conditions around it.

How do we ensure correct operation and functional safety? Safe is an industry that connects smart energy to advanced production.
