The GEV does not perform any tests itself.

In order to maintain its status as an impartial industry association it commissions external test laboratories.


Several round robin tests have shown that from a quality, competition and cost point of view, no pre-selection of test institutes should take place. However, two prerequisites must be fulfilled by the testing body:  

The labs shall

(1) be in a position to master the GEV testing method (chamber test) and have the required equipment on site,

(2) be accredited in accordance with ISO 17025, comprising the GEV test method or the EN 16516.

The entity having commissioned the tests is responsible for the test results. On the strength of reliable results they have provided in the past, GEV cooperates with the following test laboratories:
