Presidial Committees

These Presidial Committees support the Presidial Board in its various activities.

The Presidial Committees help the Board fulfill its duties. In DIN a differentiation is made between permanent committees, committees which are appointed for one term of office of the Board, and special committees called into existence to deal with a specific task.

Permanent Committees:

  • Construction and buildings
  • Research, Innovation and Development Presidial Committee (SO-FIE)
  • FOCUS-ICT Strategy Committee on Standardization in Information and Communication Technology 
  • Consumer Council (VR) of DIN
  • German Council for Conformity Assessment at DIN (DIN KonRat)

Committees appointed for one term of office of the Presidial Board: 

  • Electoral Committee
  • Finance Committee


The German Conformity Assessment Council in DIN (DIN KonRat) provides advice regarding all aspects of testing, inspections and certification.

The aim of DIN's Presidial Committee "Research, Innovation and Development (SO-FIE)" is to enhance the role standardization plays in the innovation process.

The Consumer Council represents consumer interests in standards projects.
