Abschnitt 2 – II. Definitions

  1. 1.

    Skilled electrical person

    A skilled electrical person is a person who owing to his or her skilled training, knowledge and experience and familiarity with the relevant standards is able to assess the work with which he or she is tasked and to recognize possible hazards.

  2. 2.

    Responsible skilled electrical person

    A responsible skilled electrical person is a skilled electrical person who assumes technical and supervisory responsibility and is tasked with doing so by the employer. With regard to observance of the electrical safety provisions within the area for which they are given responsibility, the responsible skilled electrical person must not be subject to the authority of persons who are not themselves responsible skilled electrical persons.

  3. 3.

    Control and supervision

    Control and supervision encompass all tasks required for the safe and proper performance of work on electrical systems and equipment by employees who do not possess the knowledge and experience of a skilled electrical person. The control and supervision of electrical work may be assumed only by a skilled electrical person.

  4. 4.

    Person who has received electrical instruction

    A person who has received electrical instruction is a person who has been instructed and if necessary trained on the job by a skilled electrical person regarding the work with which they are tasked and who has been familiarized with the necessary protective equipment and protective measures.

  5. 5.

    Operation of electrical systems

    The operation of electrical systems encompasses all tasks which are necessary for an electrical system to function, such as switching, controlling, monitoring, maintenance - including testing and servicing - and both electrical and non-electrical work.

  6. 6.

    User operation

    User operation constitutes a part of operation and encompasses observation, control, regulation and switching of the electrical system.

  7. 7.


    Work is an electrical or non-electrical task of any form during which the possibility exists of an electrical hazard.

  8. 8.

    Electrical work

    Electrical work comprises tasks on or involving electrical systems or within their hazard area, such as trialling and measurement, repair, replacement of components, modification, extension, erection and testing.

  9. 9.

    High voltage (HV)

    In the automotive sector, particularly in hybrid and fuel cell technology and on electric vehicles, high voltage comprises voltages > 60 V and ≤ 1.500 V DC and > 30 V and ≤ 1.000 VAC.

  10. 10.

    Electrical hazards

    Electrical hazards exist during work on HV systems when the voltage between the live components is greater than 25 V AC or 60 V DC and the short-circuit current where work is being performed exceeds the value of 3 mA AC or 12 mA DC or the energy exceeds 350 mJ.

  11. 11.

    Live work on the HV system

    In the context of this document, live work on HV systems is any work on the HV system during which an employee's body or items (tools, devices, equipment or apparatus) come into contact with live parts, or work during which the non-live state is not assured.

  12. 12.

    Vehicle with an intrinsically safe HV system

    A vehicle with an intrinsically safe HV system is one on which technical measures on the vehicle assure full protection against electric shock from and arcing on the HV system.

    This is achieved in particular by:

    • Safe disconnection by technical means of the HV system and automatic discharge of energy storage devices where present before live parts can be touched.

    • Cable connections involving arc-proof plug-and-socket arrangements rather than by means of threaded connections.

    • Safe disconnection when the covers of the HV system are removed.

  13. 13.

    SoP (Start of Production)

    Start of production represents the beginning of series production of vehicles, i. e. they are assembled in accordance with standardized work procedures. The development phase and manufacture of prototypes and pilot series vehicles has been completed at this stage.

  14. 14.


    Vehicles in this context are land vehicles which are moved operationally by machine force or are towed.

    Examples of land vehicles are motor cars and trucks, buses, trailers, agricultural machinery, excavators, loaders, non-railbound excavation machinery, mobile cranes, industrial trucks, ground vehicles used in aviation such as tractors, transport vehicles, vehicles for the loading and unloading of aircraft, supply and waste disposal vehicles, and two-wheeled vehicles.

  15. 15.

    TP (teaching period)

    A teaching period in this context has a duration of 45 minutes.
