Regulatory situation

The products and services of companies in the KION Group have to comply with specific legal requirements in their respective markets. Compliance with the different requirements has to be verified or certified. Many of the legal requirements are enshrined in product-specific and other standards (e.g. EN, ISO and DIN).

The tightening of emissions standards is not only taking place in developed markets, it is also increasingly observable in emerging markets such as China. This trend benefits the KION Group with its high-tech products.

Legal requirements also apply to the construction and operation of production facilities, including in relation to air pollution avoidance, noise reduction, waste production & disposal and health & safety. Furthermore, the KION Group fulfils all of the legal requirements pertaining to exports and financing business.
