The guideline advises external training providers, educating "Competent Persons for industrial trucks, attachments, trailer", of important examination topics in the context of the German occupational safety regulation. This guideline does not cover any tests of trucks that are suitable for their type of participation in the public roads, public works (facilities) on chassis of road vehicles, cranes, lifts, stacker cranes, construction equipment and trucks with telescopic boom. The guideline is affiliated to VDI 4068 Part 1 containing general statements about Competent Persons.For Competent Persons there does not exist any specifically defined job description. The German occupational safety regulation in general calls for "people with specialized knowledge for the examination of work equipment". Therefore, training providers educating Competent Persons are often confronted with problems when compiling training and examination topics. The guideline series VDI 4068 provides the training centres with assistance by defining specialist knowledge and examination topics for Competent Persons.
