Ü symbol

The Ü sign on a fall arrest product, such as an anchorage point, certifies that this product has received national technical approval and also indicates that this product must be examined once a year to ensure that it complies with the requirements contained in the approval granted by the Deutsches Institut für Bautechnik (DIBt - German Institute for Construction Technology) for this product. In accordance with current DIBt provisions, this examination must be carried out by an external test institute.

Important points to be checked include regular pull-out and fall tests, the traceability of the product and its components as well as ensuring that trained personnel are assigned to the production process.
