The ISO/SAE 21434 standard was published in August 2021 and relates to components, spare parts, and accessories for production vehicles. It covers all phases in the life cycle of a vehicle – from development through production, operation, and maintenance to recycling. Although infrastructure outside the vehicle is not actually covered by the standard, charging infrastructure, as an inextricably linked part of e-vehicle infrastructure, is directly affected by it.

"We are once again a step ahead of our competitors and continue our focus on cyber security. Even though this cyber security standard isn't mandatory for suppliers to automotive manufacturers yet, sooner or later it will become a must for the entire industry,” said Christoph Erni, founder and CEO of Juice Technology. “We are adopting it today to continue our focus as a strong partner for OEMs."
