Dutch term or phrase: TUV goedgekeurd
Context:

This is from the same translation I mentioned previously (company specialising in developing transport systems for disabled people).

The sentence is as follows:

"de spandbanden zijn TUV getest en goedgekeurd".

Again, many thanks for your help - KudoZ points will be awarded asap.

Thanks,
