Working Group 6

Standardisation, norms, certification and type approval

Working Group 6 was a multi-interest group focused on consensus-based initiation, coordination and implementation of standardization, norms, certification and type approval needs for the “future of mobility”. It defined the strategic positioning of the platform on this topic, commissioned and developed a “standardization roadmap” as a national strategy, position and tool.

Further focus areas included coordinating and strategically guiding necessary international consensus processes and integrating political support.

Structure and operation

Working group 6 established a committee of experts to further develop a “Future of Mobility” standardization roadmap, which addresses and structures relevant issues. The standardization roadmap serves to control the operative standardization, norms, certification and type approval activities carried out by the established organisations and bodies. Standardization processes and extensions or adaptations of existing standards were developed in close cooperation with the standards committees DKE and DIN. WG 6 monitored the results of this work and acts as a high-level body for support and political flanking.

The overarching objective was also to develop recommendations for action to achieve the climate and energy policy goals of the Federal Government in 2030 and 2050.
