VDMA (Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau, Germany 2010)

This standard was developed at the request and with the approval of VNA forklift suppliers, floor companies, study firms and universities, and is based on years of scientific research. VDMA is the only standard worldwide that controls all undulations that affect forklift driving behaviour. The undulation of a floor is a combination of both (medium) long and short undulations.

This flatness requirement was included in the FEM 10.2.14 / 4.103 – 1 and from September 2021 in the European standard EN 15 620. It is therefore an official European flatness standard that must be met.
