DIN is a non-profit organisation recognised as the German National Standards Body (NSB) representing Germany within CEN, the European Committee for Standardisation, and ISO, the International Organisation for Standardisation. Today, roughly 85% of all national standards projects are European or international in origin. DIN currently holds the secretariat of 17 % of all Technical Committees at ISO and 30 % of all CEN Technical Committees. DIN prepares standards as service for the economy, state, and community. Standardization is considered as a strategic instrument to support economy and the society in general. It reduces the need for legislation and supports convergence in technology whilst allowing for a wide range of local solutions if needed.

Role in the project 

DIN is the Standardisation Partner. DIN will provide guidance to the consortium regarding standardisation activities. DIN will conduct an analysis of existing standards and standardisation activities relevant for SUNRISE, support the identification of future standardisation activities, develop a roadmap for future standardisation activities, and support the initiation of standardisation activities through e. g. liaison(s) with relevant technical committee(s).
