Standardization Work

Knowledge of standards and their preparation are important factors for innovative, environmentally friendly and economical solutions

  • for new products
  • and in cases of damage.

Technical standards play a decisive role in safe construction, especially in legally regulated areas.

For me, as a convinced European, being involved in the further development of our innovative ability in Europe is a special motivation to become involved in standardization.
