German Institute for Standardization (DIN)
DIN standards for topics varying from agriculture to vehicle manufacturing in Germany
The Deutsches Institut für Normung e.V. (DIN); in English, the German Institute for Standardization develops norms and standards for rationalization, quality assurance, environmental protection, safety and communication in industry, technology, science, government, and in the public domain.
By agreement with the German Federal Government, DIN is the acknowledged national standards body that represents German interests in European and international standards organizations. Ninety percent of the standards work now carried out by DIN is international in nature.
DIN standards provide companies and individuals doing business in Germany or with German businesses a solid basis for quality, safety, and minimum functionality expectations.
