DIN Standards Committee Rescue Services and Hospital

About NARK

The DIN Standards Committee Rescue Services and Hospital (NARK) is responsible for the national standardization work and represents the German standardization interests at the European level (CEN) and at the International level (ISO) in the areas rescue services; hospital field, and medical technology.
The NARK covers the development of standards required for the organized rescue service to ensure smooth processing of medical treatment comprising the necessary equipment of vehicles used for land, water and air transports including their medical apparatus. By means of standardization for these fields of activities, a medical treatment conforming to the current state of scientific and technical knowledge in emergency medical aid, to medical-technical equipment as well as to automotive engineering technology shall be guaranteed. Furthermore, a transport of emergencies and other patients satisfying the medical needs is ensured.

The NARK is also concerned with the standardization of

  • vehicles and technical equipment for the transport of disabled persons,
  • terminology,
  • graphical symbols (pictograms),
  • modular systems,
  • organizational structures and procedures
  • as well as wall and equipment protection at hospitals.

The standardization work in the field of medical technology is focused on

  • anaesthetic and respiratory equipment,
  • tracheal tubes,
  • laryngoscopes,
  • central gas supply equipment
  • and pressure chambers for hyperbaric therapy.

The standardization work in these fields is closely linked with the work of the DKE German Commission for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies of DIN and VDE.
