TSM is a solution that is tailored to energy supply. The TSM certificate, issued in collaboration with the network technology/network operation forum in VDE (VDE|FNN), documents compliance with requirements for a company’s qualification and organization for operating electricity distribution networks based on VDE-AR-N-4001 (S 1000).
By issuing the TSM certificate to ovag Netz AG, the VDE Institute affirms the energy supplier’s organizational safety with respect to technical safety and enterprise organization. To that end, independent VDE experts test the organizational structures for compliance with laws, ordinances, generally accepted rules of engineering, and employers’ liability insurance association rules.
“Our TSM service offers many advantages to network operators like the ovag NetZ AG, e.g. when applying for concessions. Furthermore, liability risks can be minimized and employees and managers in network operating companies gain confidence in their actions. Supporting independent action is still the goal”, explained Dr. Klaus Kreiß during the awarding of the TSM certificate in Freidberg.
