Directions through the cosmos of standards


International standards and regional laws clearly specify the framework

There is virtually no other technical topic that is as much regulated by standards and laws as machine safety. Machine manufacturers and end users that do not strictly comply with these provisions take big legal risks. Contact our Safety Specialists in case of doubt. They know which standard applies to your machines in which target region.

With our interactive cosmos of standards you can gain an overview online. Simply select your market segment and draw the respective standards to outer circle. Then click on your target region. This is where you find the links to local laws. You can add the local laws to the graphic as well. Now you have your individual standard compass which you can save or print.
