Standardization is currently one of the key focuses of the work of Composites Germany. By coordinating the activities of its member organizations, Composites Germany generates greater power for promoting and achieving the objectives of the industry. To increase the transparency of the standards relevant to the composites industry, Composites Germany has commissioned the German standards organization DIN to create a "standardization portal". In partnership with DIN, this website provides information on national, European and international standards for fibre reinforced plastics that have been published or are under development. This new and unique source of information for the composites market supports the existing standardization conducted by Composites Germany and can be found now here: Standardization portal composites
