As reported in port2port:

The standard will be the foundation for the establishment of an electric car recharging infrastructure, the operation of electric cars, and public safety

The Standards Institution of Israel (SII) issued a press release last week noting it had set the standard for charging electric vehicle (EV) by cables- Israel Standard 6185 Part 1.

The SII noted that the new standard will standardize methods for charging electric cars, detailing the functional and electrical requirements to ensure the availability and safety of the service.

The standard will be the foundation for the establishment of an electric car recharging infrastructure, the operation of electric cars, and public safety.

Standards Institution director general Dan Goldstein said, “The Israel Standard for charging electric cars by cable combines creative elements, such as the use requirement of designated plugs for electric cars. It has therefore drawn the attention of other national standards institutions. We believe that the standard will be mentioned in regulations that the responsible ministries will write for regulating the electric car charging sector in Israel.”
