DIN is organized in:
- Presidial Board
- Presidial Committees
- Standards Committees
The Presidial Board is responsible for standardization policy, and - acting directly or through its commissions - makes business and financial policy decisions for DIN and its subsidiary and associated companies.
These Presidial Committees support the Presidial Board in its various activities.
Standards work at DIN is carried out by over 70 Standards Committees, who are not only responsible for national work in their field but also for standardization in their subject(s) at the international and European level.
Several commissions consult and support the DIN Director and coordinate various DIN activities with those of other institutions.
