German VA/VM Standards
The Association of German Engineers (VDI) has developed one of the most important technical rule bases with VDI Standards. More than 200 new or revised VDI Standards based on the latest technical developments are published by VDI’s technical divisions every year. A set of technical regulations has been built up systematically, which contains more than 2,000 valid VDI Standards, extensively covering a broad field of technology subjects. They all follow the process described in the standard VDI 1000: consensus-based and with a public objection process. The topics range from securing loads on road vehicles to testing optical fibers up to monitoring the effects of genetically modified organisms and Value Management/Value Analysis.
Below you will find a list of the German VA/VM standards, available in English. Each link leads to a short description of the standard:
You can buy VDI standards via download or as printed copies. Every order must go via Beuth Verlag. Information about how to buy the standards and special conditions are available at http://www.vdi.eu/engineering/vdi-standards/web-shop-at-beuth-verlag/.
