Safety and TüV Certification

Personal certification is a controlled  process that follows fixed rules. It is thus a guarantee that the necessary skills are firstly  acquired, and are subsequently tested regularly and maintained.

We have TÜV certifications for 90% of our playground equipment.

We have two certified TÜV playground inspectors at Norleg, Jens and Anette.


TÜV SÜD (Technischer Überwachungs Verein) is a fully accredited European testing and certification authority, similar to the Danish Technological Institute and Force Certification A/S.

TÜV has more than 30 years' experience of  testing and certifying playground equipment  and certifies about 90% of all playground  equipment in Europe. This experience  is passed on to playground  inspectors at certification training courses.

This ensures that the inspections are carried out based on the same points of view as when the equipment was originally certified, and therefore that it complies with generally applied principles for inspection procedures in the EU.

Playground equipment from NORLEG is manufactured in compliance with the safety requirements of DS/EN1176, general Part 1 and specific Parts 2 to 7.


NORLEG has internal playground inspectors who risk-assess the playground equipment during the design and production phases. 
In special cases external consultants are brought in for risk assessment purposes. 
To conclude the process the equipment is certified by the accredited testing provider TÜV Product Service GmbH as being in accordance with safety requirements. 
The products are certified by Dansk Standard on the same basis.


Inspection plan: 
In accordance with the new European standard EN 1176, Part 7, the playground equipment requires an inspection and maintenance plan. 
The plan and other documentation pertaining to maintenance, inspection and repair must be kept together in a folder by the owner/operator who is responsible for the playground on a daily basis.


The inspection plan must at a minimum include the following three types of inspection: 
• Routine visual inspection. 
• Operational inspection. 
• Main annual inspection.


Routine visual inspection: 
The routine visual inspection makes it possible to identify obvious hazards which may arise from vandalism, normal use or climate conditions. 
Hazards may include broken glass or other sharp objects. Daily inspection may be required for playgrounds that are heavily used or regularly exposed to vandalism.


Operational inspection: 
The operational inspection is a more detailed inspection to check the wear and tear, function and stability of the equipment. 
This inspection should be carried out once a month, but if the playground is not used very often, this may be reduced to once every three months.


Main annual inspection: 
The main annual inspection should be carried out at intervals of no more than 12 months. 
This inspection is to check the general safety level of the equipment, foundations and surfaces, e.g. effects of the weather, signs of wear and tear, any changes to equipment safety levels as a result of repair, supplementary or replaced components.

Permanently sealed parts should be thoroughly inspected.


Clothing in the playground: 
1) Clothing for children up to the age of seven (height 1.34 m) must not have ties or cords in the head or neck area. 
2) Clothing for children aged between seven and fourteen must not have ties or cords in the head or neck area with a length of more than 75 mm or cords with loose-hanging ends. Ties in the head and neck area must not be elastic - with the exception of shoulder straps and ‘halter neck’ straps 
3) So-called ‘halter necks’ on children's clothing must not have loose ends in the head or neck area. 
4) Children's clothing that is designed to be tied on the front must not have tied belts or cords that are longer than 360 mm measured when they are untied and from the point where they are to be tied. 
5) Other ties and cords on children's clothing must not hang loose further than the end of a sleeve or edge of the clothing. 
6) Do not sew children's clothing that does not meet the above requirements. 
7) If you are already in possession of children's clothing that does not meet the requirements of points 1-5 above, you should remove or cut off the tie or cord.


You also have the option of exchanging the product in the retail outlet where it was bought and advise the salesperson of the risks associated with the product.


Tie: a string affixed to the clothing for decorative purposes or used to adjust the size of an opening or to secure the clothing. 
Cord: a cord which runs through a channel or eye used to adjust the size of an opening to secure the clothing.
