||The CE directive 90/270 (CIS 90-1069) on work with visual display terminals contains among other things requirements on the ergonomic design of computer software. Until the introduction of national regulations complying with the directive, standards DIN 66234 Part 8 and ISO 9241 Part 10 and directive VDI 5005 can be used in Germany. These standards and directives, which are summarized, spell out the requirements for the ergonomic design of dialogues with the computer. Enterprise councils in German government offices have the right to check compliance with the standards and the directive. Check lists for the ergonomic evaluation of software in use in offices, for quality control during the development of software and for determining the satisfaction of the users as well as a glossary are included.
