The Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) has accredited TÜV Rheinland AG, a global provider of independent testing, inspection, and certification services based in Cologne, Germany.
The accreditation means TÜV Rheinland can now offer complete testing of automotive lift equipment to ALI standards for North American, European Union, and global markets.
Building codes in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. require that all installed vehicle lifts meet the Automotive Lift Construction, Testing and Validation (ALCTV) safety standards issued by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and ALI. TÜV Rheinland will now be able to test products against ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2011, which is the current recognized safety standard.
Only those lifts tested by independent third-party nationally accredited testing laboratories can carry the gold “ALI Certified” label and are then listed in the ALI Directory of Certified Lifts.
TÜV Rheinland was founded in 1872. For more information on the company, visit www.tuv.com/us.
