German standardization institute adopts innovative content management platform to modernize and improve content services at national, European and global level. 

Standardization is a vital part of modern business. It supports efficiency and quality assurance in industry, technology, science and the public sector; helps safeguard people and property; and improves quality in almost every area of life.

That is why the work carried out by the German standardization institute, Deutsches Institut Normung (DIN), is so important. Founded in 1917, DIN is the independent platform for standardization in Germany and international organizations such as CEN, the European standards body, and ISO, the International Standards Organization. Its many committees look at different standards  from construction and buildings to information technology and acoustics. Each committee plays a significant role in helping innovations come to market by producing standards. A standard is a document that specifies requirements for products, services and processes  helping ensure the free movement of goods and encouraging exports.

Collaboration on the production of standards between DIN's roughly 36,000 experts is essential. The organization has always relied on a document management platform to facilitate that collaboration and ensure experts have access to the correct version of standards documentation.
