COVID-19 (coronavirus)

Dear business partners, visitors and participants,

as you know, the VDE has stood for safety for over 125 years.

Due to the current situation regarding coronavirus (COVID-19) developments and effects in Asia and Europe and the current rampant flu viruses, we also take your personal safety very seriously.

We currently do not know of any cases of illness in our group worldwide.

We are immediately implementing 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 have been instructed to always follow the latest recommendations from health authorities and to avoid contact with people who are known to have stayed in affected areas less than 14 days ago.

Hygiene measures have been increased at all VDE locations. Disinfectant dispensers were and are installed at sanitary sites.

A "No handshake policy" is currently in effect.

Although we are not currently aware of any travel restrictions within Germany, we have decided to impose a general travel restriction for the VDE Group in Germany until further notice in order to protect our employees, visitors, participants and business partners.

Meetings of (technical) committees: For the time being, these are to be held exclusively virtually or via web conference until the end of June 2020.

We thank you for your trust and ask that all our visitors at our meetings, events, and VDE locations follow the appropriate precautionary measures.
