Road vehicles - the topic of the new issue of “BDS Compass” magazine

 

The topic of the first issue of “BDS Compass” magazine for 2019 is about road vehicles, as it is impossible to move safely even a kilometer without standards. Although this topic is as vast as the world of standards, we have selected several important and interesting standards. We explain how to identify the manufacturer globally, what the size and font rules for registration plates are, how to determine the engine power. We show what the control symbols in a vehicle mean and how they inform you about any correct action or malfunction.

 

The airbags are extremely important for our safety in the vehicle. And when there is a child inside, standards are needed to reduce the risk of injury.

 

The expert with many years of expertise in the automobile industry, eng. Emil Kacharov assures that, as a rule, the standards show the level achieved by the society on a given issue and it is unacceptable to disregard it.

 

Under the heading of “Focus” we explain how the electronic invoices save billions. The widespread adoption of e-invoicing in the European Union would bring significant economic benefits, and switching from paper to electronic invoices would bring savings of around EUR 240 billion over a six-year period.
