Der Schutz der Verbraucher vor gefährlichen technischen Produkten ist das oberste Ziel der Marktüberwachungsbehörden. Für die Marktüberwachung sind in Deutschland die Bundesländer zuständig. Eine effiziente Marktüberwachungstätigkeit bedarf daher einer bundesweiten Koordination. Die PTB unterstützt im Rahmen von Marktaufsichtsfällen u.a. bei technischen Fragen zu explosionsgeschützten Produkten.

Bereits zum neunten Mal seit 2006 trafen sich die Mitarbeiter der ATEX Marktaufsichtsbehörden in der PTB zum Erfahrungsaustausch. An den beiden Veranstaltungstagen wurden einerseits aktuelle...

Due to the withdrawal from the nuclear energy programme and the concurrent need to reduce fossile combustibles and carbon dioxide emissions, many sources of renewable energy have to be installed. Among these are water and solar energy power plants, but to a large extend also wind turbine (WT) installations. In the end of 2016 as many as 27.270 wind turbines with a power of 45.900 MW had been installed in Germany (source: WindGuard GmbH). For efficiency reasons, WT become taller and taller and now reach that airspace, in which RADAR and terrestrial navigation systems operate. For safe operation...

The Si-kg workshop was addressed to invited National Metrology Institutes (NMIs) and Designated Institutes (DIs) and illustrated the dissemination of the SI unit kilogram via silicon spheres.

It was a great pleasure to meet with almost 100 NMI representatives and mass experts from 44 countries.

Besides oral presentations, leading managers and operators from all around the world were provided with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in handling Si spheres. This included cleaning, weighing on mass comparators, transportation and safekeeping, among other things. In addition, a new...
