Frequently Asked Questions

The German Institute for Standardization (Deutsches Institut für Normung) is the national standards organisation in Germany. It is responsible for developing, maintaining, and promoting standards (usually within the medium of research projects) across industry, research, consumer protection and the public sector. The DIN is key in gauging consistency, quality, and safety in German products and services.

DIN Standards come as the result of work at national, European and/or international levels. It sets the bar for everything from screw sizes and paper formats to electrical safety and environmental regulations. DIN Standards are reviewed at least every five years, and a standard can either be revised or withdrawn if it no longer reflects the current state of technology.

The DIN is an independent, non-governmental organisation that is owned by its members. These members include stakeholders like businesses, associations, public institutions, and certain individuals. This independent membership keeps DIN standards transparent and collaborative to accurately reflect the needs of all stakeholders.

DIN's primary role involves developing new standards, maintaining existing standards, promoting the adoption of new standards, and representing Germany in international standardisation. 

Through its committees, DIN addresses specific industry needs deemed important for industry, commerce, and society. It actively contributes to international standardisation bodies (e.g. ISO), aligning German standards and global practices.
