DIN EN 840 – The International Standard and RAL Quality Mark


DIN EN 840 is the European standard for the manufacture of mobile waste containers that specifies requirements for the dimensions and design, the performance criteria and testing, and the health and safety requirements of an MGB. SULO two and four wheeled containers are manufactured in accordance with DIN EN 840.

To obtain our initial certification, SULO Australia was required to send MGB's made in the Australian manufacturing plant to an authorised testing facility in Europe, where the wheelie bins were put through a series of tests.

SULO now operates an official testing facility and is no longer required to send products overseas for testing. SULO MGB Australia emerged as the only Australian manufacturer of MGB's carrying the DIN EN 840 certification.

RAL Quality Mark

Waste containers that carry the RAL quality mark are guaranteed to provide maximum usability, working safety, environmental protection and compliance with applicable standards including DIN EN 840. All SULO injection moulded four wheel containers manufactured in Germany carry the RAL quality mark.
