We are DIN-certified to ensure that your data is safe

We offer quality you can rely on - and can prove it! Our company is certified for the standard-compliant destruction of documents and data carriers, in compliance with security levels and protection classes according to DIN SPEC 66399. This means that we guarantee professional, certified document destruction. We also hold an audit certificate in accordance with DIN EN ISO 9001 : 2015.

Your data cannot be accessed by unauthorised persons at any time. To ensure this on site at your company, we provide lockable security containers. These are collected by our long-standing employees with special vehicles and brought directly to the security area on our company premises in Berlin Charlottenburg. The security containers are opened at the beginning of the destruction process only in an area, which is monitored by camera and protected by access controls.

Then the material goes directly to our state-of-the-art destruction facility, where it is shredded up to protection class 3 in accordance with the strict guidelines of DIN 66399. The material, which is thereby irretrievably destroyed, is then mixed, pressed into paper bales and finally made available to selected paper-processing industries.

After completion of the process, i.e. the removal of all information content from your files, you will receive a certificate confirming data protection-compliant destruction and disposal.

They all come with a slit in the lid and a security lock. You can choose between the locking systems of the K-series (key lock) and the I-series (integrated combination lock). If required, you can also use an M-series security container with an integrated shredder head.

Feel free to contact us for advice on the appropriate container for your needs.

What is governed by the document destruction standard DIN 66399?

The German standard 66399 defines and regulates the destruction of files and data carriers, as well as their disposal. Depending on the information content of a data carrier, a certain protection class is assigned to it. The carrier materials are classified and security levels are defined which are to be applied to the type of destruction of the files or data carriers.

There are three protection classes according to which data carriers are classified:

Protection class 1: normal level of protection (e.g., company correspondence)

Protection class 2: high level of protection (e.g., personnel files)

Protection class 3: very high level of protection (e.g., secret service files)

In addition, there are seven security levels, which regulate the requirements for the degree of shredding during document destruction. They thus specify whether "simple" shredding is sufficient or whether a data carrier must be ground to "dust". Generally, security level 3 is sufficient. Security level 4 and above is for extraordinarily sensitive data, for example when shredding documents for secret services.

Legal retention period

The German Commercial Code (§ 257 HGB) and the German Fiscal Code (§ 147 AO) regulate how long commercial documents must be kept, i.e., from when they can be destroyed. The retention periods can be 6 or 10 years, depending on the type of document. For more information, you can download our document here:

"Guten Tag sehr geehrter Herr Kindermann,
wenn ich mich nicht  täusche habe ich auch mit Frau Kindermann gesprochen. Großes Lob. Ich bedanke mich sehr herzlich bei Ihnen und bei Ihrem Mitarbeiter gestern. Er war toll, hilfsbereit, freundlich und zuversichtlich. Egal ob ich früher für die Firma oder jetzt für mich und auch für meine Freundinnen. Wir alle haben Sie im besten Sinne des Wortes als wirklich ausgezeichnete Dienstleister erlebt. Ich muss Ihnen das schreiben, weil ich es sonst nicht als Allgemeingut erlebe.
Vielen vielen Dank bis zum nächsten Mal, sehr herzlich"
