CATAGEN is proud to announce that it has received regulatory approval from TÜV Hessen for its Exhaust Aftertreatment Ageing Devices.

TÜV Hessen is an association of independent companies that test, inspect, and certify technologies, products, and systems to ensure potential hazards and prevent damages. It is a globally recognised standard for excellence that provides a company’s customers peace of mind. The entire process to achieve TÜV certification is a comprehensive journey that involves multiple steps; including the identification of statutory regulations, assessment by qualified trainers, selection of methodology and examination approach, and development of examinations with expert examiners in their fields.

To receive this from an industry leader in aftertreatment services, such as TÜV Hessen, is a huge achievement for all the team here at CATAGEN.
