Coordinating Standards Work at DIN
The DIN Commissions play an important role in the coordination of standards work at DIN. The Commissions consult the Director of DIN and help coordinate work between various sectors of standardization and between DIN and other institutions. The Commissions make recommendations which are implemented by the Director. They are set up for a specific purpose and then dissolved once their task has been completed. Commissions do not develop standards. Find more about the Commissions here.
For over 10 years the DIN Environmental Protection Helpdesk (DIN/EPH) - an independent, impartial coordinating and consulting body - has helped DIN standards committees incorporate aspects of environmental protection in national, European and international standards. The DIN/EPH steering committee comprises representatives from industry, public authorities, environmental and consumer NGOs, research organizations and labour unions.
