Positions and opinions
No matter whether it’s product safety, comparable test methods or international trade agreements, standards play a role in numerous political fields. They are vital for ensuring free movement of goods and helping the EU single market to function seamlessly, thus contributing substantially to the success of the German economy. The stakeholder letters and comments below tell you which topics related to policy require consideration, and what DIN’s position on them is.
The standards organizations CEN and CENELEC (electrical engineering) also actively participate in the political discussions on a European level. In line with the national delegation principle, DIN represents the German interests at CEN. You can find the political positions of CEN and CENELEC on their respective Websites.
