The VDMA offers its member companies further supporting documents for the China Compulsory Certification for electrical Ex-products (CCC Ex), which has been mandatory since 01 October 2020.
The Technical Regulation TR EAWU 048/2019 "On the Energy Efficiency Requirements for Energy Consuming Appliances" will enter into force in the Eurasian Economic Union (EAWU) no earlier than 01 September 2021.
The new process flyer, which was developed in cooperation with the Institute for Production Engineering of E-Mobility Components at RWTH Aachen University and the VDMA, offers manufacturers of electric motors and mechanical engineers insights into the new production technology for hairpin stators.
On 25 October 2019, the new Regulation (EU) 2019/1781 laying down ecodesign requirements for electric motors and variable speed drives was published in the Official Journal (L 272) of the European Union.
From 1 October 2020, electrical equipment for use in explosion-protected areas may no longer be imported, sold or produced without China Compulsory Certification (CCC) and the CCC label.
On 14 January 2019, the EU member states adopted the new draft of the regulation laying down ecodesign requirements for electric motors and variable speed drives. The new regulation will extend the scope of the current regulation (EC) 640/2009 with regard to the power ranges and types of electric motors and will now also include variable speed drives.
The mechanical engineering industry supports the new electric motor regulation EU Member States approved on 14 January 2019. However, the VDMA reminds that untapped potential lies in a system approach.

Working Groups

The Electric Power Transmission Engineering working group is the central meeting place for users and manufacturers of electric power transmission engineering. The members of the working group meet biannually at different sites to exchange product-related experiences.


The Power Transmission Engineering Association supports its members competently in technological, economic and political questions and informs them about current topics and trends from the customer industries in mechanical and plant engineering.


Mobility is becoming more diverse. The change in mobility is set Hybridization and electrification are increasingly becoming the standard. Mechanical engineering is the focus here - its companies produce mobility.
The E-MOTIVE forum is intensively involved in research activities for the further development of electric mobility.
From 2030 on, the fuel cell will be represented with a significant share in passenger cars, commercial vehicles and mobile machines. Sales of 11 billion euros for fuel cell components in passenger cars alone are possible in Europe in 2040.
Hyper-high speed for the electrified automotive powertrain to achieve maximum ranges In the Speed4E project, experts from industry and science are working together to develop an innovative hyper-high-speed drivetrain for use in electrified automobiles.
Electric mobility, fuel cell, power-to-x - the change in mobility is complex and in the future there will not be just one type of drive on the market.
The E-MOTIVE Board brings together decision-makers from the industry and brings together expert knowledge from various sectors relating to electromobility: automotive industry, electrical engineering, mobile machines and suppliers.
