The CiA international users’ and manufacturers’ group has introduced periodical email service, which needs to be subscribed to. The monthly CAN Info Mail reports about events and informs briefly about new technology developments. This includes standards and specifications. CiA’s Weekly Telegraph is distributed weekly and contains product-oriented news and reports. It links to articles published online (CAN Newsletter Online) and in PDF format (CAN Newsletter magazine). All CiA information is given in English language. These email services can be subscribed to by email.

"Since beginning of this year, CiA headquarters has improved its processing of person-related data to meet the requirements of the data protection resolution," said Holger Zeltwanger, CiA Managing Director. "We will store and process person-related data only for the desired services. All not needed data will be deleted."
