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 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 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 ISO 14971:2013

Medical devices - Application of risk management to medical devices (ISO 14971:2007, Corrected version 2007-10-01); German version EN ISO 14971:2012 (Foreign Standard)

This International Standard specifies a process for a manufacturer to identify the hazards associated with medical devices, including in vitro diagnostic (IVD) medical devices, to estimate and evaluate the associated risks, to control these risks, and to monitor the effectiveness of the controls. The requirements of this International Standard are applicable to all stages of the life-cycle of a medical device. This International Standard does not apply to clinical decision making. This International Standard does not specify acceptable risk levels. This International Standard does not require that the manufacturer have a quality management system in place. However, risk management can be an integral part of a quality management system.

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 6930-2:2011

Stamped steel parts - Part 2: General tolerances (Foreign Standard)

This standard is intended to simplify drawings. It specifies general tolerances on linear and angular dimensions and on coaxiality and symmetry in four accuracy grades which are meant for use and hot stampings made from steel flat products. They shall apply whenever reference is made to this standard on drawings or relevant documents (e. g. in delivery conditions). General tolerances for parts made by fine blanking are not covered in this standard. If, by way of exception, it is intended to apply this standard also to components made from semi-finished products other than flat products, or from materials other than steel, this shall be particularly agreed. This standard shall be applied in conjunction with the specifications given in DIN 6932. DIN 6930-1 is valid for the technical delivery conditions of stamped parts. Regulations for general tolerance in existing drawings are included in clause 5.*This standard is the technical revision of the standard which has been published in 2010-01. This revision primarily includes the update of the normative references and the expansion of the nominal dimension ranges and the tolerances for thickness ranges or for angles on flat stamped parts. This standard is intended to simplify drawings and specifies general tolerances for linear and angular dimensions, concentricity and symmetry in four accuracy levels. They are subdivided into f (fine), m (medium), g (coarse) and sg (very coarse). By selection of a certain accuracy level, the normal workshop accuracy shall be considered. General tolerances according to this standard are used for cold- and warm-formed stamped parts made of flat steel products. They apply if this standard is referred to in drawings or associated documents (for example, terms of delivery). This standard hasbeen prepared by NA 026-00-03 AA "Stanzteile" ("Stamped parts") of the Springs, Stamped Parts and Moulded Parts Standards Committee (NAFS) at DIN, the German Institute for Standardization e. V. For further information about the NAFS, visit us on the Internet under

DIN ISO 7619-1:2012

Rubber, vulcanized or thermoplastic - Determination of indentation hardness - Part 1: Durometer method (Shore hardness) (ISO 7619-1:2010) (Foreign Standard)

The document specifies a method for determining the indentation hardness (Shore hardness) of vulcanized or thermoplastic rubber using durometers.*This document contains the German translation of the International Standard ISO 7619-1:2010, which has been prepared by Technical Committee ISO/TC 45 "Rubber and rubber products" (secretariat: DSM, Malaysia). The responsible national committee is NA 062-04-34 AA "Prⁿfung der physikalischen Eigenschaften von Kautschuk und Elastomeren" ("Test procedures for physical properties of rubber") at the Materials Testing Standards Committee (NMP). This part of DIN ISO 7619 specifies a method for determining the indentation hardness (Shore hardness) of vulcanized or thermoplastic rubber using durometers with the following scales: - the A scale for rubbers in the normal-hardness range; - the D scale for rubbers in the high-hardness range; - the AO scale for rubbers in the low-hardness range and for cellular rubbers; - the AM scale for thin rubber test pieces in the normal-hardness range.

DIN EN 645:1994

Paper and board intended to come into contact with foodstuffs; preparation of a cold water extract (FOREIGN STANDARD)

The document describes the preparation of a cold water extract for investigations of certain extractives in paper and board intended to come into contact with foodstuffs.


As the voice of the U.S. standards and conformity assessment system, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) empowers its members and constituents to strengthen the U.S. marketplace position in the global economy while helping to assure the safety and health of consumers and the protection of the environment.
