TÜV SÜD Newest BACnet Recognized Testing Organization

Company one of four testing centers for BACnet compliance


BACnet International is happy to announce that TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH is now a Recognized BACnet Testing Organization. It is one of four such recognized testing laboratories in the world. TÜV SÜD is a trusted partner of choice for safety, security and sustainability solutions. They specialize in testing, certification, auditing and advisory services.


Recognized BACnet Testing Organizations (RBTOs) conduct BACnet product testing to confirm products' compliance with the BACnet standard. Their test reports are the basis for BTL Certification and Listing.


“Our testing operations establish whether the BACnet standard has been completely and correctly put into practice”, says Christian Bauerschmidt, managing director of TÜV SÜD Industrie Service GmbH. “Successful conformity testing provides product manufacturers with third-party proof of their products’ flawless communication capabilities. Correct implementation of the BACnet protocol is one of the paramount requirements to ensure products from different manufacturers can be integrated smoothly into a building automation system.”


The new Building Automation Laboratory expands the portfolio of product testing and certification services provided by the existing TÜV SÜD Industrie Service Centres of Competence for Refrigeration & Air-Conditioning and Firing & Heating Technology.


As a Recognized BACnet Test Organization, TÜV SÜD Industrie Service is authorized to test the entire range of building automation components, spanning sensors and actuators, application-specific control units, freely programmable DDC systems and control and operating systems.


“We’ve very happy to welcome TÜV SÜD Industrie Service as the newest BACnet testing organization,” said Andy McMillan, president and managing director of BACnet International. “They share our commitment to raising the quality and conformance of BACnet products available on the market.”
