Search engine description

The search engine makes certificates-based public information easily available via the online search engine. The service is at

Product certificates can be searched from the certificate database by means of the certificate number, name of manufacturer, product name, certificate type and search-facilitating search classification. For example, in the case of construction products, the Talo 2000 classification is used, and the user can search for all certificates granted by VTT Expert Services Ltd for windows by observing this classification in the database.

As a result, the search presents a list of currently valid certificates. Information on the certificate selected from the list with possible attached data can be examined separately. In searching for the certificate by number, the information concerning the certificate is presented, even if the certificate has ceased being valid.

In searching for person certificates, either names from the person certification areas or person certificate numbers can be used. It is also possible to further specify the search criteria for person certification in the search engine, whereupon a suitable person can also be searched on the basis of domain if the person has selected the additional service for him/herself.

By using the search engine, you can search for person certificates and the related information, which is:

  • the person's name
  • domicile
  • certificate number and competence area
  • the person's photo (if permission for this has been obtained from the person)
