TÜV Saarland e.V. supplies expert third party inspection services to the offshore industry.

We deliver controlling and monitoring services for the manufacturing and pertinent testing of technical facilities, appliances and steel products (e.g. plates, flanges, forgings, pipes, pressure vessels). Our inspection services are aimed at minimising liability risks and protecting people, the environment and goods from potential danger.

Complex technical operations require comprehensive expertise. The specialists at TÜV Saarland have many years experience working as independent experts on behalf of the consumer, as testers entrusted with a supervisory role, as developers in
research projects and as consultants of the legislative branch. The TÜV marks has become an independent quality mark of quality. You can rely on the verdict of TÜV.

SGS-TÜV Saarland combines the technical know-how of a technical monitoring body with worldwide representation. TÜV Saarland’s experienced engineers possess high technical competence and deliver test results and expert opinions that are
recognised in Germany and around the world.

Global service requires local know-how: head office in Sulzbach- Germany, nearby to many well known manufacturers of steel products.
Local third party inspection services for global challenges: we develop solutions with you on site.
Inspection on site: take advantage of our full-time availability on-site to act as extended arm.
Mechanical-technological tests: witness of tests on behalf of our customers.
Offshore plate inspection: final control before shipping, as the last step in a thorough inspection.

For us, service first and foremost means close contact with the customer. This is achieved through our own offices at the sites of manufacturers and operators of safety-relevant components and facilities. We are where you are. And that means for you
straightforward lines of communication, prompt tests and inspections as well as fast results.


Our independent tests and inspections assist you in assuring the desired quality in the early purchasing stage. Thus, you are able to have tests carried out concerning conformity to rules and standards, as well as making sure that you meet the
characteristics and specifications demanded by the customer.

Through our work on site we assist you in meeting deadlines and obtaining transparency for each manufacturing step, from the selection of materials to the finished product. Thus surprises at the final assessment can be avoided, and you can be sure
that you are able to meet the demands of your customers for quality and delivery reliability.
