Founded in 1917 as the Normenausschu der deutschen Industrie (NADI, Head oce of the German Ins tute for
"Standardisation Committee of German Industry"), the NADI was renamed Standardiza on in Berlin-Tiergarten.
Deutscher Normenausschu (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 fr 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.

The acronym, 'DIN' is often incorrectly expanded as Deutsche Industrienorm ("German Industry Standard"). This is
largely due to the historic origin of the DIN as "NADI". The NADI indeed published their standards as DI-Norm (Deutsche
Industrienorm). For example, the first published standard was 'DI-Norm 1' (about tapered pins) in 1918. Many people still
mistakenly associate DIN with the old DI-Norm naming convention.

One of the earliest, and probably the best known, is DIN 476 the standard that introduced the A-series paper sizes in
1922 adopted in 1975 as International Standard ISO 216. Common examples in modern technology include DIN and
mini-DIN connectors for electronics, and the DIN rail.
