Contracting parties benefit from these advantages if they acknowledge the RAL quality mark as a proof of bidder eligibility and compliance with technical specifications in their calls for tender.
The reason is the strict Quality and Testing Regulations products and services must comply with in order to be awarded the RAL quality mark. The Regulations cover all relevant properties, including the manufacturer’s reliability and efficiency and the product’s technical and performance standards.

This procedure meets all requirements of procurement law in Germany.
