It’s official! There is a Certificate for refurbished iPhone, iPad, and MacBook devices in the Netherlands. As Renewd, we’re proud to announce that we’re one of the few companies that have received this certificate. Apple devices that are labelled with this certificate are devices of a premium quality. In collaboration with TUV, we played a major role in the development of this Certificate. The announcement of the Certificate makes the Netherlands the first country in the world with a regulated certificate for refurbished hardware.
A good warranty service is one of the requirements for this Certificate. The 2-Year Warranty extends to the device, battery and accessories within the device.This type of warranty isn’t even applicable for new devices. With our Free Pick-up & Return service, we take a great warranty to the next level.
Quality Control for the Certification
Our Apple devices are subject to the strictest Quality Control in the market, whilst being tested by an Apple Premium Service Provider with Apple’s official AST software. The software inspects the devices on 83 critical features and its repair history for optimum use and authenticity. To receive the Refurbished Certificate, the devices should be tested on at least 50 critical points (hardware & software). The minimum of 50 critical points required by the certificate are easily met by our Quality Control. Additionally, we still remain the only one using 100% original parts on the refurbished market.
To receive the Certificate, a company is required to pass several tests. TUV Nederland, an independent certification institute, perform the technical audits at the participating companies to guarantee high levels of quality. However, the premium quality of the products isn’t the only requirement for the Certificate. Certified Companies will have to meet certain financial requirements as well. These requirements are tested by another independent organisation (EDR Credit Services).
