Blue Angel


What is Blue Angel?

Blue Angel is the World’s oldest and most renowned eco-label. It was created by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment and has been running since 1978. Juried by and independent governing body made up of many  highly respected associations and trade unions, the award is given to products with high environmental, serviceability, health, occupational protection and quality standards.

How is Blue Angel Awarded?

To achieve Blue Angel status, the Catalytic Converter undergoes additional rigorous testing on top of the already achieved 103R approval. This additional testing is similar to that which is required for homologated catalysts, with the notable addition of a comparison of the performance of the part when new to its performance after it has been artificially aged. This is designed to simulate how the part will react when it is fitted to the vehicle. Additional testing is then undertaken each year for the lifespan of the part.

By undertaking different tests each year for the first four years and a complete test in the fifth year, Blue Angel certification ensures that the part continues to provide reduced vehicle emissions and sustained functionality in the long term. At the end of the five year period, the process starts again. This is the most thorough regime of testing for Catalytic Converters in the industry and only products that meet these high standards can be awarded the label.
