The Path to the DIN Certification Scheme

The Path to the DIN Certification Scheme

Both we and our customers have an interest in DIN certification becoming established on the market with the greatest possible degree of success, and developing into an industry standard. For this reason, the following process steps have proven their effectiveness when drawing up new certification schemes from the idea until market launch:

  • Consultation about the process, including determination of the scope and quality level. The objective is a brief written specification of the content and scope of the planned DIN certification by the applicant, to be submitted and evaluated by DIN CERTCO (free of charge)
  • Internal evaluation of the project, including market research and initial calculations for development and later certification
  • Application for development of a certification scheme by the applicant
  • Where applicable, founding of a certification committee with the participation of stakeholders (e.g. manufacturers, consumers, retailers, universities, insurers, authorities, testing laboratories).
  • Drawing up of a certification scheme, including all documents relevant to certification (fee according to calculated expenses, which, if needed, can be calculated with the application)
  • Internal approval of certification documents and implementation of the certification system
  • Publication of the certification scheme and market launch
