Facts & Figures

DEKRA’s history began in Germany in 1925. In that year, the Deutscher Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungs-Verein was founded. The company had its roots in the automotive sector, but over the following decades it developed into an expert organization with numerous services aimed at increasing safety.

To this day, DEKRA continues to ensure safety at work, at home and on the road. We do this by testing, inspecting, certifying and advising. DEKRA is one of the largest testing and certification companies in the Netherlands with approximately 1,000 employees. The company’s activities in this country focus on various areas, including Product Testing & Certification, Auditing, Industrial Inspection, Consulting, Claims & Expertise and Rail.
