Safety Standards 

VDE Subscriptions According to Subjects  

The DKE has compiled selections of standards from the VDE Specifications Code of safety standards specifically tailored to certain trades, industries and themes in co-operation with several competent representatives from various trades and industries. These selections of standards have the advantage over pocket editions in that they are regularly updated and are available at a substantially lower price as compared to individual buying. The selections are also available on character-coded CD-ROMs (pdf format with integrated search functions).

  • VDE Selection of Standards on Functional Safety

To guarantee the correct function – or the correct state – at the time required is a major aspect of any automation task. If safety functions are concerned, we also speak of “functional safety”. Thereon this VDE selection provides the basic standards. All manufacturers of safety related controls as well as consulting engineers and users of automation and process appliances should have this selection of standards on their hand.

You can find the current indexes of this selection on the website of the VDE-VERLAG.

  • VDE Selection of Standards for the Construction Industry
       
    Architects, construction firms, building authorities and other organizations in the construction business have to conform to the respective applicable safety standards. The key electrotechnical safety standards for the electrical installation of buildings are compiled in the VDE selection of standards for the electrical engineering trade. For all other parties concerned, the VDE selection of standards for the construction industry serves as a basic information source.

  • VDE Selection of Standards for the Electrical Installation of Buildings
     
    The DKE, in close co-operation with the Association of German Electrical Engineering Trades (ZVEH), has compiled the core DIN VDE Standards for this very broad occupational field of the electrical engineering trade. The VDE selection is an integral part of the standard German workshop equipment for electrical installation companies pursuant to the regulations of the Federal Electrician Commission.

  • VDE Selection of Standards for the Protection in Areas Potentially Endangered by Explosive Material
     
    The protection in areas potentially endangered by explosive material is a main topic of accident prevention at work and in both public and private areas. For this purpose, statutory regulations were issued by the legislature. In addition, those responsible are supported by relevant safety standards. This VDE selection is a collection of the electrotechnical safety standards most often required for the protection in areas potentially endangered by explosive material. The VDE selection is compiled and updated in close co-operation with the German National Metrology Institute (PTB) and the German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (ZVEI).

  • VDE Selection of Standards for the Power Supply Company
     
    The liberalisation of the energy market will open up new opportunities and offer new challenges for power supply companies. The Association of German Electricity Supply Companies (VDEW) has analysed the VDE Specifications Code of safety standards to ensure that the VDE selection of standards for the power supply company will also fulfil the additional critical requirements of this industry. The selection is regularly updated to the constantly changing requirements of the energy supply market.

  • VDE Selection of Standards for the Electrical Engineering Industry
     

    This VDE selection contains the electrotechnical safety standards most often required by electrical engineers. It is a "basic module" of a standards collection which satisfies the specific requirements of individual companies. This VDE selection may be supplemented by other VDE selections and/or be expanded by electrotechnical safety standards (DIN Standards with VDE Classification) identified by a "VDE Subscription's Extension".
