This task cannot be accomplished without a comprehensive framework, interface definition and the creation of interoperability through standardisation. The standards required are largely attributable to the field of electrical engineering, electronics and information technology.

Only with their help is a technological basis created on which companies can compete for the best product in this new technology. This is especially true in the context of the globalised economy.
We have summarised the most important positions in our policy paper on standardisation. These include:
