DKE German Commission for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies of DIN and VDE

About DKE

The DKE German Commission for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies of DIN and VDE is a modern, non-profit service organization which ensures that electricity is generated, distributed and used in a safe and rational manner, thereby serving the good of the community at large.

The DKE is

  • the national organization responsible for the creation and maintenance of standards and safety specifications covering the areas of electrical engineering, electronics and information technology in Germany.
  • a joint organization of DIN German Institute for Standardization (DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V.) and the VDE Association for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies (VDE VERBAND DER ELEKTROTECHNIK ELEKTRONIK INFORMATIONSTECHNIK e.V.). The VDE is responsible for the daily operations of the DKE.
  • the German member of IEC International Electrotechnical Commission, Geneva, and CENELEC European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization, Brussels.
  • the national standardization organization (NSO), responsible for Germany, of ETSI European Telecommunications Standards Institute, Sophia Antipolis.

The results of DKE work form an integral part of the German collection of standards. As VDE specifications its electrotechnical safety standards also form the VDE Specifications Code of safety standards.
