The DEKRA Laboratory for Environmental and Product Analysis in Stuttgart has successfully passed the TISAX® Assessment. The laboratory has attained TISAX® Assessment Level 3 — indicating that very high protection requirements have been satisfied — in all three modules (data protection, information security, and prototype protection). Among other services, the DEKRA laboratory in Stuttgart offers emissions and materials testing of vehicle parts for the automotive industry, including for suppliers within this industry.

Trusted Information Security Assessment Exchange (TISAX®) is an initiative established by the German Association of the Automotive Industry (VDA). The TISAX® Assessment is a reliable and standardized proof of compliance with international information security requirements for suppliers and service providers of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). The certification for the prototype protection module is of particular importance for initial sample testing, for example.
The DEKRA laboratory at the Stuttgart site has been supporting automotive manufacturers and suppliers for a number of years in the areas of emissions and materials testing for a variety of clients within the automotive industry. Examples of its services include test chamber and odor measurements of vehicle interior parts, as well as flammability testing of vehicle components. As a neutral and independent analytical service provider, DEKRA maintains a network of modern accredited testing laboratories in Germany that provide quality assurance, research and development, and damage analysis.
A TISAX® assessment is considered an important prerequisite for business relationships in the automotive industry today. The TISAX® assessments are recognized worldwide, meaning that companies can present the assessments as proof of security to their business partners all around the world. This reduces the need for individual verification and multiple audits, facilitating increased efficiency in cooperation.
