Based on the requirements of the Rule Finding Committee (Regelermittlungsausschuss, REA) and consumer protection, operators of electric vehicle charging facilities are required to implement the requirements of German calibration law. Transparency software allows consumers to verify the correctness of meter readings taken during an EV charging procedure regardless of their location. During this process the software verifies the digital signatures of the readings taken.
The aim of the Association is to make this software available to all companies active in the field of electric mobility in order to create a uniform standard for transparency software, to maintain it in the long term and thus to promote and guarantee consumer protection.
Together with other companies in this area, some of the founding members of the Association conducted research or supported research activities undertaken in order to develop the software and developed specific transparency software for electric mobility.
The transparency software was tested and certified by the VDE (test report dated April 18, 2019 - 5024855-1470-0001/254265 TL4/shf).
