Handicare: ISO 14001 and 9001 certified
We are proud of the quality of our product. Our commitment to the quality of our stairlifts has been recognised by Bureau Veritas and has earned us two ISO certificates. These demonstrate that we meet stringent ISO criteria at an international level.
Our stairlifts (and / or production facility) meet multiple safety standards: they are tested and approved by independent global test services, for example the Dutch Liftinstituut, the British Standards Institution and the German Technischer Überwachungs Verein (TÜV). This means that you can be certain that your stairlift meets the most stringent quality and safety criteria.
