Standards and technical rules aim to standardize tangible and intangible objects (terms, products, processes, etc.) in the fields of science, technology, business and administration. They are an important source of information on the state of the art.

The Technical University Library Hamburg is the official point for DIN standards. All valid DIN standards as well as draft standards (also DIN ISO, DIN EN etc.) and VDI guidelines can be viewed online.

DIN standards are for reference use only. Copying is allowed for DIN members only, which includes all affiliates of TUHH. Any other requests for copying should be directed to the Beuth-Verlag.

Exception: UrhG §45 Rechtspflege und öffentliche Sicherheit
