Standardization

The department represents the national and international standardization interests in automotive technology, telematics and freight containers.

Standardization – An important topic for rationalization and quality assurance

The standardization establishes specifications for interfaces to basic safety requirements as well as to product quality and rationalization.

The standards committee Automotive (short NAAutomobil, formerly FAKRA) is an institution of the VDA German Association of the Automotive Industry and the DIN German Institute for Standardization and represents the interests of national and international standardization in the field of automotive. The activities of the standards committee include all product-specific standardization issues for road vehicles (except special vehicles such as agriculture vehicles, fire and emergency vehicles). Securing cargo in commercial vehicles, container multimodal transport and intelligent transport systems are also supervised by the technical standardization NAAutomobil.

Fields of activity

The standards committee Automotive of DIN (German Institute for Standardization) represents the interests of national and international standardization in the field of automotive. The activities of the standards committee includes the preparation of all standards, such as terminology standards, testing standards, dimensional standards, interface standards for road vehicles, as well as their bodies and their entire equipment (excluding agricultural tractors and special vehicles such as municipal, fire and emergency vehicles). Furthermore, the standardization committee is also responsible for the standardization of multimodal transport container (such as cargo containers and swap bodies).

The German Standardisation Roadmap Electric Mobility 2020

The German Standardisation Roadmap Electric Mobility 2020 gives a summary of the finalised, current and future standardization activities in the area of electric mobility. The three section: market preparation (until 2014), market launch (until 2017) and volume market (until 2020) are the timeframe for this roadmap. Guided by the principle „Standards combine the world“, national as well as international standardisation activities are part of contemplation in all sections.

By now, the fourth edition of the standardisation roadmap perpetuates the previous editions. After an introduction into the national and international standardisation activities (chapter 2), the standardisation progress and prospective activities are presented in topics like „General requirements“, „Automotive engineering“ and „Charging interface“ (chapter 3). Working group 4 developed visions for each topic, which could be also found in chapter 3.
