The topic of large-volume and heavy transport is of particular importance for some branches of mechanical engineering. At present, the processing times of the exemptions necessary for the implementation are increasing sharply again. The VDMA is working with many other associations to find a remedy, and has set up a central working group with branches in Bavaria and North Rhine-Westphalia. We will report on the current status and discuss the topic with you as the affected person.
The long-running issue of aviation security will continue to occupy us. On 14.10.2019 a telephone conference with the Federal Ministry of Transport took place in Bonn. It is to be expected that finally the processes for necessary adjustments of procedures will be coordinated with all participants in advance. The interrupted exchange with the Luftfahrt-Bundesamt is put on a new basis. We report on the current status of our activities and ask for a lively exchange of experiences.
At an individual event organised by the East German Association on the subject of lithium batteries, it became clear that there was still a need for clarification. We report briefly on the results of this survey and would like to discuss this topic with you: hardly anyone will be able to say today that "we do not use Li-batteries", because today they are installed in many parts and replace conventional batteries. But hardly anyone thinks about the dangerous goods properties of these products with far-reaching consequences when something happens.
The event is "free of charge" for VDMA member companies. The final registration confirmation will be sent to the participants 2 working days before the event.
