“DEKRA has been promoting safety for more than 90 years now. The safety of commercial vehicles was already key when the German Motor Vehicle Inspection Association was founded in 1925 in Berlin,” said DEKRA Management Board Member Klinke. DEKRA is now one of the world’s leading expert organizations operating in over 50 countries on all five continents. And even though our safety efforts cover a wider range of areas now, the safety of commercial vehicles – in the interest of DEKRA e.V.’s 23,000 members, which, for the most part, are from the transport sector – will remain one of our key concerns in the future.”
