The DKE business organization
The DKE business organization is divided into four divisions:
The Technology division works with experts from industry, science, trade and politics on current and future standardization topics. In this way, we will continue to help secure Germany's position in the future as one of the leading economic nations. The increasing convergence of technology requires new thinking: in addition to traditional product standards, it is also important to improve the networking of system experts and to make innovative topics such as cybersecurity accessible on all platforms.
DKE supports companies in using standardization as a strategic tool. The important work in the standardization committees is complemented in many ways: by development projects, thematically relevant events such as workshops and webinars as well as numerous other measures for the application and development of technical rules. For example, development and support projects are interlinked with standardization work in order to yield synergies for the rapid and application-oriented implementation of innovative topics in new standards or specifications.
In addition to Technology, the internal Production and Finance & Controlling divisions are responsible for implementing standardization projects, IT support, etc.
The External Relations & Support division expands the already well-established national and international standardization networks and deals e.g. with strategic issues concerning the entire standardization policy. This division supports the management bodies of IEC and CENELEC and monitors developments relevant to standardization in more than 70 nations worldwide.
