Mechanical engineering standardization in China
Chinese standards are often comparable with legal requirements and therefore important for the access to the Chinese market.
Basic and generic safety standards (type A and B)
The VDMA database “Machinery safety standards” provides a search facility for type A and type B standards. Thus the database is a helpful source of information for designers and standards users.
