The standard advises external training providers, educating "Competent Persons for cranes, slings, lifting attachments, and hoist media", of important examination topics in the context of the German Occupational Safety Regulation. The standard 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 series of standards VDI 4068 provides the training providers with assistance by defining specialist knowledge and examination topics for Competent Persons.
