Short answer: No.

Long answer:
Quote from Steve: "We are not required to be certified by any of the above organizations, but our wheels pass tests that far exceed them"

Since Forgeline does not have a physical presence in Germany, they would not gain a certification.
Forgeline is familiar with JWL testing and they are confident that they would have no problem passing them. FL wheels easily pass the SAE standards that most North America companies use.

Of course, Forgeline's biggest testing lab is on the track. When the wheels are being used with 3000 lb. cars and slick tires load ratings of 1700-2100lbs. Forgelines have been on the track RACING for 20 years.

We went with FL for our shop car since we always see BMWs, Vette, Porsches and other cars on Forgeline wheels RACING at the track.
