Actually, these EU directives  are the cradle of technical communication. And actually, they are really helpful, provided that you have the necessary overview.

Claudia Klumpp graduated in law and business administration. After working several years as a lawyer and legal consultant, she joined the professional associations tekom Deutschland and the European Association for Technical Communication – tekom Europe in 2013. She is in charge of the standardization and lobbying work for these two associations on both, the national and international levels. She was co-author of the tekom guideline “Delivery of information for use in electronic form – eDoc”. During the last two years, she chaired a DKE working group of representatives of industry associations and larger industrial companies to draw up a position paper, published in October 2020. This position paper was fully supported by tekom Europe and aimed at politicians and shows that there is no way around clarifying instructions in digital form.
