Update on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from 2020-04-20

Dear business partners, visitors and participants (m/f/d),

as you know, VDE has stood for safety for over 125 years. Due to the CORONA pandemic, we also take your personal safety very seriously. We are still not aware of any case of illness in our group worldwide.

The entire VDE Group continues to follow the recommendations and guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and health authorities, and we are taking any necessary precautionary measures to protect the health of our employees, visitors, participants and business partners.

Our employees are instructed to always follow the latest recommendations of the health authorities. In addition, in many areas of the VDE Group we have switched to "mobile working" and implemented significantly increased hygiene measures. The focus is on infection protection and hygiene measures, which means that increased attention is paid to this everywhere, and especially where contact is necessary, for example in certain working environments.

I am sure that you too are closely following the developments of the CORONA pandemic and the decisions of the German Chancellor with the heads of government of the federal states. Only recently, further important decisions were taken which are groundbreaking for us as the VDE Group.

In order to protect our employees, business partners, members and participants, the necessity of participating in external appointments is carefully examined and travel is kept to a minimum.

It remains true that we have decided for large parts of the VDE Group that we will initially cancel, postpone or virtually conduct all events until the end of June 2020. In the case of major events, this applies until the end of August 2020.

Special exceptions within the scope of what is legally permissible have been and will be discussed with the divisions relevant to the business. Our committee and technical committee meetings will initially be held exclusively on a virtual/web conference basis until the end of June 2020.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please contact our VDE Task Force CORONA at taskforce-corona@vde.com. We thank you for your trust and understanding. Stay healthy!
