NEN Connect offers worldwide availability of standards.That is very important to us.
DEKRA is a leading international provider of expert services. All testing, inspection, auditing and certification activities of the former KEMA Quality are an integral part of the DEKRA Certification Group. This also applies to all related safety, conformity and certification marks, such as KEMA-KEUR. Edith Cremers is responsible for standards management at DEKRA and KEMA. ‘With NEN Connect, we got a tailored solution. Perfect.’
‘Since we have been working with NEN Connect, our colleagues in the Netherlands and abroad have direct access to all standards. I receive applications from all around the world, including the United States, China and Italy. In the past I had to send the ordered standards to each applicant separately. With NEN Connect, all our branches have global access to all standards at once, 24 hours a day. This makes NEN Connect an indispensable service.’ International standards that DEKRA used to order from foreign normalisation institutes are now also obtained via NEN Connect. ‘Requesting standards from different suppliers was very time consuming. Now everything is done via NEN Connect. Soon we will also have access to the German standards for our German colleagues.’
‘Much of our business is in China. This is where, among other things, tests for the Dutch market are carried out. With NEN Connect, the Chinese applications are handled in exactly the same way as applications from our Dutch colleagues. It is no longer necessary to send paper versions of standards, which saves time. The ordered standard is now available to everyone within half an hour. What’s more, thanks to NEN Connect my colleagues also have the assurance of having the most up-to-date standards.’
