The difference with the fuel cell is that it's universal. You have to prove its durability and its construction. Being that suspension designs are different on every application, you must certify each one.
this is what ive always though too, but the H&R TUV cert that someone posted elsewhere did not seem application specific.

As noted prior, the TUV cert for the E36 would not roll over to the E46 as the struts have a very different lower mount design.

If you'll notice, the H&R cert and the Koni cert attached in the first post are both very specific about which vehicles they are applicable to, even specifying the specific E46 submodel and the permissible axle load.

And also, TUV certification doesn't expire or need to be tested repeatedly. Once a product is TUV certified, that is good for the lifecycle of the product unless changes are made.

ISO is different.
