German term or phrase: Die Markenkennzeichnung belegt neutrale Prüfungen
Hello all,

This is from a marketing piece about furniture. It says "Unsere Moebel entspricht allen deutschen und europaischen Richtlinien. Die Markenkennzeichnung belegt neutrale Prüfungen mit Modellnamen und nachhaltiger Kontrollnummer."

I really am not sure what the second sentence means. My guess is that is to do with the QA process and that pieces of furniture are submitted for testing anonymously, without the brand name attached? I am really guessing though, and any help would be much appreciated!

Thank you!

Explanation:
The trademark label gives evidence of neutral tests referring to model names and sustainable control numbers.

The German sentence sounds like a bad translation to me...

Explanation:
...of indendent testing

in so many words, and with the understanding that this is an attempt to make sense of (or read sense into) a bit of strange German. Maybe it is a translation or written by a non-native?

In this context I would understand Markenkenzeichnung as 'brand marks' or 'brand indications'

and the key supposition is that ''belegt' is supposed to be 'provides proof of' (rather unusual usage in this sort of context)

read 'independent'
