Update on COVID-19 (Coronavirus) from 2020-06-19

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.

Within the VDE Group we are still not aware of any case of illness worldwide. 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.

Current federal and state decisions foresee that the restriction on large events will be extended until at least the end of October. Accordingly, it has been decided that, in principle, we will cancel or postpone such events until the end of October for the VDE Group.

To meet your requirements and needs, we are developing innovative formats that will enable both purely virtual and hybrid participation. You will soon receive more detailed information on these offers from our group.

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.

If you have any questions, suggestions or comments, please contact our VDE Task Force CORONA at

We thank you for your trust and support. Stay healthy!
