Update on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from 2021-06-22

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

Safety, security, and sustainability are firmly anchored in the VDE Group. In this respect we would like to inform you regularly about the latest developments in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic.

The entire VDE Group follows the successful recommendations and guidelines of the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) and the health authorities and takes all necessary precautions to protect the health of our employees, visitors, participants and business partners.

We inform our employees regularly about the latest developments. Our employees are instructed to always follow the current recommendations of the health authorities.

For the VDE Group, "mobile working" has been implemented in many areas, all hygiene measures are constantly monitored and extended if necessary. Infection protection and hygiene measures are a central focus, i.e. increased attention is paid to them everywhere, and especially where contact is necessary, for example in certain working environments.

Both for your protection and for the protection of our employees, business partners, members and participants, the necessity of participating in external appointments is carefully screened and travel is kept to a minimum. In order to meet your wishes and needs, we have developped innovative formats that allow both virtual and hybrid participation. For further information, please see the respective event announcement.  

Regarding our committee and technical committee meetings, it still applies that these are primarily held virtually or via web conference. Any exceptions will be implemented under all valid protective and security measures.

Please note that a mouth and nose cover must be worn in all VDE Frankfurt and Offenbach buildings. This obligation does not apply at your own desk or at your place in the meeting room if a distance of at least 1.5 meters can be maintained. For unavoidable presence in VDE buildings, sufficient rapid tests and FFP2 masks are available.

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 support. Stay healthy and we too look forward to seeing you again soon in a safe environment.

What does TIC mean for the VDE Testing and Certification Institute?

TIC are precisely the three letters that define us. Because we at the VDE TESTING AND CERTIFICATION INSTITUTE not only conduct tests on safety, electromagnetic compatibility and other product characteristics but we also perform the appropriate inspections and the final certification to obtain the corresponding certificate.
At the same time, we always operate independently and neutrally in order to deliver consistently high quality and reproducible results. 

Information tailored to me

VDE mark – valid certificate or abuse?

The VDE marks are synonymous with safety and allow for simple access to world markets due to the high acceptance of the certified testing service. Devices, components and systems that fulfill the criteria and are successfully certified not only receive the corresponding VDE certificate but also earn a spot in our "Hall of Quality".
