Explanatory Notes

Norms and standards:
Standards and norms serve the purpose of rationalisation, safety, environmental protection and understanding in business, technology, science, administration and the public. Standards are not legal regulations, they are merely rules of technology and create clarity between suppliers and customers, facilitate design, production and maintenance. (back)


Perinorm provides information on the most important national and international standards (ISO, IEC, ITU) and technical regulations in Europe. Perinorm international also contains information on important US standards as well as Australian, Japanese and Canadian standards.
Perinorm offers you information in German, English or French on the following questions: Which norms and draft norms are available? When were they issued or withdrawn? Which technical rules, legal and administrative regulations with technical reference must be observed in Germany and France? Which EU directives are relevant? (back)

DIN catalogue:
Anyone looking for specific information in the field of technical regulations will be quickly and comprehensively informed by the DIN catalogue. It provides information on: all current DIN Standards as well as publications of other private rule makers in Germany, all legal and administrative regulations (laws, ordinances, etc.) with technical reference, internationally valid sets of rules (ISO, IEC, CEN/CENELEC, ETSI) (back)

Collection technical law:
Which technical regulation is applicable to a given situation at a given time?  DITR data service, Perinorm and DIN catalogue have always provided information on this question, based on the collection of technical law. It comprises - unique in Germany - all legal regulations with technical reference. (back)

The CD-ROM contains all accident prevention regulations (VBG; BGV) published by the German Federation of Institutions for Statutory Accident Insurance and Prevention (HVBG). With the BGV A6 "Specialists for occupational safety" and the BGV A7 "Company physicians" in the versions of the individual professional associations. Additionally with the small edition of the "Symbol library BGV A8". (back)

DIN indicator for technical rules:
The CD-ROM announces the acceptance of an application for standardization, the publication of a draft standard and the current amendments or additions as well as withdrawals of standards. (back)

TGL collection:
complete TGL collection with the complete index of bibliographic data. In the GDR, the TGL's (Technical Standards, Quality Regulations and Delivery Conditions) were the equivalent of the DIN standards. With the so-called "GDR standards" all procedures, products and technologies were regulated. The Office for Standardization, Metrology and Product Testing of the GDR (ASMW) in Berlin-Köpenick was responsible for this. After the fall of the wall, it was incorporated into the German Institute for Standardization e.V. (DIN). The TGL regulations are still important today for repair measures or replacement investments. As copying the TGL documents is not subject to any special licence conditions, these documents are available to any interested party for inspection and, if necessary, for copying. Paper copies of the TGL can also be ordered from us in writing at a price of 0.20 EURO per page plus shipping costs. (back)
