DIN: German Institute for Standardization

DIN, the German Institute for Standardization, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards on a wide variety of topics. Headquartered in Berlin, Germany, DIN is Germany's national standards organization, serving as its representative in the European CEN and the International ISO and IEC. With approximately 26,000 members and through these associations, DIN standards are synchronized with the rest of the world. Standards from DIN are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

Below are DIN's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.

DIN 16742:2013

Plastics moulded parts - Tolerances and acceptance conditions; Text in German and English (Foreign Standard)

Subject of that draft standard are exclusive production-orientated moulding and tool contoure tolerances of plastics mouldings

DIN EN 13432:2000

Requirements for packaging recoverable through composting and biodegradation - Test scheme and evaluation criteria for the final acceptance of packaging; English version of DIN EN 13432 (FOREIGN STANDARD)

The document specifies requirements and procedures to determine the compostability and anaeobic treatability of packaging and packaging materials by addressing four characteristics: 1) biodegradability, 2) disintegration during biological treatment, 3) effect on the biological treatment process and 4) effect on the quality of the resulting compost.

DIN EN 10204:2005

Metallic products - Types of inspection documents (FOREIGN STANDARD)

This European Standard specifies the different types of inspection documents supplied to the purchaser, in accordance with the requirements of the order, for the delivery of all metallic materials such as plates, sheets, bars, forgings, seamless pipes, welded pipes, ...whatever their method of production.

DIN EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017

Information technology - Security techniques - Information security management systems - Requirements (ISO/IEC 27001:2013 including Cor 1:2014 and Cor 2:2015); German version EN ISO/IEC 27001:2017 (Foreign Standard)

This International Standard covers all types of organizations (e. g. commercial enterprises, governmentagencies, non-profit organizations). This International Standard specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented ISMS within the context of the organizationaes overall business risks. It specifies requirements for the implementation of security controls customized to the needs ofindividual organizations or parts thereof. The ISMS is designed to ensure the selection of adequate and proportionate security controls that protect information assets and give confidence to interested parties.

DIN 10955:2004

Sensory analysis - Testing of packaging materials and packages for foodstuffs (Foreign Standard)

The standard specifies test methods for the sensory analysis of packaging materials which are intended for wrapping of foodstuffs which come in direct contact with the packaging material. Justification of this test is the identification of migration of odour and off-flavour substances from the material on the foodstuff. The test is applicable for evaluation of whether the material is suitable for the packaging of the foodstuff intended to come into contact with it. This standard is only partly applicable for the sensory analysis of paper and board. For the sensory analysis of paper and board regarding off-odour and off-flavour in indirect contact at room temperature DIN EN 1230-1 and DIN EN 1230-2 shall be used.

DIN 12880:2007

Electrical laboratory devices - Heating ovens and incubators (FOREIGN STANDARD)

The standard specifies performance requirements and tests for heating cabinets and incubators in laboratories. The standard applies for cabinets and incubators with a working temperature range from -10 øC to 300 øC and includes shaking incubators.

DIN 4150-3:2016

Vibrations in buildings - Part 3: Effects on structures

DIN 4150-3 specifies methods of measuring and evaluating the effects of vibration on structures designed primarily for static loading. It applies to structures which do not need to be designed according to specific standards or codes of practice as regards dynamic loading.

DIN 45669-1:2010

Measurement of vibration immission - Part 1: Vibration meters - Requirements and tests

This standard specifies requirements of vibration measuring instrumentation (vibration meter) as well as tests of different extense and precision. These vibration meters are used in vibration immission issues and serve to measure vibration which affect buildings and/or people in buildings. It specifies requirements of frequency and time weightings as basis for determination of evaluation quantities which follow from the specifications in DIN 4150-2 and DIN 4150-3. The requirements can be realised digitally or analoguely in the vibration meter. This standard specifies which tests are at least to be performed by the manufacturer, user or on their behalf in order to verify fulfillment of the requirements of the vibration meter. Additionally it specifies which information is to be given in the documentation of the several tests. If this standard is referred to in the accreditation of test or consulting institutions in the area of vibration immission in connection with DIN 45688 and DIN EN ISO/IEC 17025 it only applies to the instrumentation. Specification of the measuring procedure and the transducer coupling are given in DIN 45669-2. The assessment of the measured values with regard to vibration immission is not dealt with (for that aim, see DIN 4150-2 and DIN 4150-3). However, Annex E gives a method by means of which the assessment according to DIN 4150-3 can be automatically done.*Within the framework of immission protection, measurements are necessary for the detection and evaluation of mechanical vibrations (shock, vibration) which affect buildings or humans in buildings, as well as for testing the efficiency of the protective measures. The measurement uncertainty of the determined results also depends on the accuracy and resistance of the used vibration measuring device (vibration meter). For this reason this standard specifies requirements for vibration measuring devices. Requirements for the frequency and time weightings as a basis for determination of evaluation quantities are given. The requirements can be realised digitally or - as far as it is possible - analogously in the vibration meter. The evaluation of the determined measured values regarding immission protection is not the subject of this standard (refer to DIN 4150-2 and DIN 4150-3). Independent of this, Annex E provides a method allowing for the automation of the evaluation according to Table 1 of DIN 4150-3:1999-02, by establishing the evaluation vibration speed vB for the evaluation of short-term impacts on buildings by frequency weighting. This results in a single number value which can be directly compared with the reference values given in DIN 4150-3 without having to define the decisive frequency for the maximum vibration speed value. The standard also specifies whichgraded tests according to cost and accuracy are to be carried out by the manufacturer, user or on their behalf in order to prove adherence to the requirements for the vibration meter. Furthermore it specifies which information shall be recorded in the documentation of each test. With regard to DIN 45669-1:1995-06 and DIN 45669-3:2006-06 the following changes have been made: a) the focus is on particular characteristics of digital vibration measuring devices; b) differentiation between accuracy classes has been deleted; c) the standardized term for the vibration meter has been deleted; instead this information shall be given in the data sheet. This standard has been prepared by Working Committee NA 001-03-09 AA (NALS/VDI C 9) "Messung von Schwingungsimmissionen" ("Measurement of vibration immission"). It is supplemented by DIN 45669-2 "Messverfahren" ("Measuring method").

DIN 7603:2001
