DEKRA Becomes CharIN Member

DEKRA Automobil GmbH has been accepted as a member of Charging Interface Initiative e.V. (CharIN). In this way, DEKRA wants to further intensify its efforts in developing, inspecting, and certifying a safe, efficient, and compatible charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.

DEKRA has already been active in the area of electromobility for many years with numerous services: These include vehicle inspection, internal and external training, occupational safety, inspection, and certification of charging stations as well as national and international committee activities. Through participation in CharIN, DEKRA wishes to use the group-wide expertise to promote CCS as the comprehensive compatible standard and to make a contribution to further standardization.


DEKRA has worked in the field of safety for over 90 years. What was founded in 1925 in Berlin under the name Deutscher Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungsverein e.V. is now one of the world’s leading expert organizations. DEKRA is Germany’s largest inspection organization and is number 1 worldwide for vehicle inspections. In 2016, DEKRA achieved revenues of around €2.9 billion with more than 39,000 employees worldwide.
