Electrical Engineering Sector Committee at a glance


The Sector Committee on Electrical Engineering focuses primarily on conformity assessment issues in areas that are not already covered by the scope by European directives (e.g. LVD). These include for example conventional power generation and power transmission and industrial low-voltage switchgear. The committee also deals with subjects in the area of lighting technology and optics.

As a cross-sectional issue, the subject of “Functional safety” has also found a home in this sector committee.


The DAkkS Sector Committee on Electrical Engineering is made up of expert representatives of the authorities of the federal states and the federal government and of academic disciplines, industry and conformity assessment bodies.
