Information on legal texts and standards for design engineers

Revised information sheet: legal texts and standards for design engineers



 © DGUV Test

Design engineers, importers and vendors need reliable, up-to-date information for their work. The applicable legal bases have to be observed when developing, procuring or selling work equipment but where can one find the current versions of the legislation quickly? On the European single market and beyond, standards play a key role in the production of work equipment. However, finding information on relevant European or international standards is often very time-consuming.

The two updated BG-PRÜFZERT information sheets can help. BG-PRÜFZERT Information Sheet 8, "Legal Texts on the Internet", explains how important legal texts can be accessed directly, whilst BG-PRÜFZERT Information Sheet 9, "Standards Information on the Internet" points readers to helpful internet sources concerning standards.
