Be it the craftsman pledging for the quality of his cloth or an automotive manufacturer today producing a first class product, quality was and is used for marketing and is therefore part of both, the image of the product and the manufacturer. Second, quality is not an inherent characteristic of a product, but is visually displayed by signs or marks. In other words, a sign or mark is used to indicate a particular level of quality. 1 Third, quality assurance was initially part of the skills of a craftsman: craftsmanship stood for high quality.
Moreover, these attempts were supported by two laws. In 1874, the Statute to Protect Marks protecting the interest and rights of third parties and consumers was issued in Germany and the protectionist policies led to the ratification of the Statute to Protect Trade Marks by the German Reichstag in 1894. In order to protect German products, the prerogative of issuing marks, once administered by craftsmen, became an institutionalised standard centrally regulated by the Patent Office of the Empire.
