The SCHUKO Warenzeichenverband e.V. is a registered association that holds the rights to the word mark „SCHUKO“ and the word/figurative mark worldwide. The trademark portfolio of the association is continuously expanded and maintained.
Only the members of the association and companies that have been granted a corresponding license by the association are entitled to use the “SCHUKO”- trademarks. Therefore, according to its statutes, it is also one of the tasks of the association to take action against the unauthorized use of the trademark „SCHUKO“ as well as by third parties.
The purpose of the association is to further develop the requirements for SCHUKO plug systems as well as the guarantee of compliance with the requirements of the DIN-VDE standards of the 0620 series in their current version by such products, which are marketed under the name „SCHUKO„, since the consumer expects the highest safety standards from them. These safety standards are the reason why the SCHUKO system has become one of the most successful plug systems over the past 90 years, and is used in over 70 countries around the world.
