ARGE Topics
1. Main working topics of ARGE in the past and today

a) National and European standardisation

During many decades Manufacturers knew only their National Technical Standards. With an increasing globalisation, international Standards, that means performance standards became necessary and were required. International Standards shall eliminate trade barriers and contribute to easier exchange of products from country to country. But International Standards like CEN shall be harmonised and be tested according common rules and mutual recognition is also required.

b) Development of Security and Safety products

Requirements from the market for high security products were permanently increasing. Not many Manufacturers were spared of this development and they were obliged for their surviving to create and to develop new security products or to co-operate with partners.
Access control became more and more important and has been a part of our hardware business. All these high security products need performance standards and testing requirements in various security classes according to the need of the market.

2. Main working topics of ARGE in the future

• To use all reasonable and legal means to protect its members from incorrect policies and practices of governmental organizations or trading companies.
