DIN, the German Institute for Standardization, plays an important role within CEN/CENELEC (European Committee for Standardization/European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardization), which develops standards and works towards European harmonization. European Community (EC) standards coupled with the entire realm of testing and certification are of prime interest to U.S. manufacturers desiring access to the EC market.
This specialized two-part glossary (German/English and English/ German) of plastics testing terminology has been developed to benefit those involved in the processes of harmonization and mutual recognition of standards and specifications.
