Fitness For Use (FFU) - Performance Testing
Manufacturers and retailers must keep track of their product’s safety. Apart from the mandatory regulation, DEKRA offers a new programme, called Fitness For Use (FFU), for manufacturers and retailers to evaluate their products’ performance. Based on user’s point of view, DEKRA FFU is an index for them to ensure their products meet user’s expectation.
DEKRA FFU covers a wide range of performance tests, covering Durability Test, Functional Test, Handling Test and Instruction Manual Verification.
The DEKRA seal is the outward expression not only for safety, but also for quality and performance of your products. Combing with DEKRA FFU prgramme and inspection services, the DEKRA seal creates your products confidence in both quality and safety for end users.
The DEKRA seal also provides your business with a sales argument for your products, either as proof of the quality of your business processes or as documentation of your cooperative arrangements and partnerships with DEKRA.
DEKRA Fitness for Use “FFU” testing program can be performed at various stages of product life cycle to support manufacturers and retailers for becoming a market leader by product differentiation. By taking actions continuously seeking for improvement before bringing products to the markets, retailers and manufacturers are able to:
- Reduce return rates, thereby lowering costly guarantee claims.
- Differentiate from competitors by setting quality and ergonomic standards beyond safety requirements.
- Build consumer trust and brand loyalty.
