Good standards form the basis of safe products and work equipment. This concern is shared by DIN and KAN, who have worked closely together for many years.

DIN – originally known as NADI, the Normenausschuss der deutschen Industrie – was founded on 22 December 1917. Since its beginnings in 1918 with the first DIN standard governing taper pins, the body of standards has grown to encompass over 34,000 standards. DIN has been a member of ISO since 1951, and became a founding member of CEN in 1961.

To mark its centenary, DIN has opened an exhibition in Berlin under the heading of "NormenWerk". Visitors to the exhibition, which is free of charge, can learn more about the history and significance of standardization.
