MODsense temperature logger achieves new certification.

Inside Modum

April 17, 2019

Modum is among the first companies to receive TÜV SÜD approval for temperature loggers. The Modum team, led by Product Quality Manager Mikko Leimio, received the official TÜV SÜD quality seal. The MODsense T solution passed all requirements pertaining to the norm EN 12830:2018.

It all started back in June 2018: We knew that in order to take our solution to the next level and meet customer demands, the MODsense data logger would need to adhere to European standards and regulations:

The standard

The EN 12830 standard regulates the quality of temperature recorders for the transport, storage and distribution of temperature sensitive goods. However, there has been a transition from the version dating back to 1999, during which the focus of the norm shifted to providing additional requirements for cloud and software-as-a-service solutions. You can read more about the norm below. 

The process

Eager to start the certification process, we set out to look for a reliable, independent and accredited test laboratory and finally found TÜV SÜD Germany. After having settled on a test laboratory, the process of qualifying our product started. Firstly, we needed to deepen our understanding of all relevant regulatory requirements and European standards. Thanks to the team’s dedication and the successful collaboration with TÜV SÜD, we were able to go through the process smoothly. Today we are proud to announce that in February 2019 we became one of the first companies to complete all requirements and receive the TÜV SÜD quality seal.

With the MODsense solution being qualified according to the EN 12830:2018 requirements, we are now able to market our solution for digital supply chain monitoring. The MODsense solution as a whole temperature recording system is tested to meet conformity, suitability and performance requirements.
