The German Institute for Standardization, is the German national organization for standardization and is that country's ISO member body. Founded in 1917 as the Normenausschuß der deutschen Industrie, NADI, "Standardisation Committee of German Industry", the NADI was renamed Deutscher Normenausschuß, DNA, "German Standardisation Committee", in 1926 to reflect that the organization now dealt with standardization issues in many fields; viz., not just for industrial products. In 1975 it was renamed again to Deutsches Institut für Normung, or 'DIN' and is recognized by the German government as the official national-standards body, representing German interests at the international and European levels.
