What is TÜV?
TUV is a German acronym for Technischer
Überwachungs-Verein. TUV are German
organizations that work to validate the safety of products of all kinds to
protect humans and the environment against hazards. Automotive components must
be approved by TUV in order to be sold and installed on road going vehicles in
Germany. The requirements for TUV approval are very stringent. Oettinger has
been producing and selling TUV approved components for many years. Many of the
aftermarket wheels and other automotive parts produced in Asia and even in the
United States would fail TUV approval and be deemed unsafe. By being certified
by TUV, one can be assured that the Oettinger product has passed the most
stringent of safety and reliability qualifications.
