Abstract : Standardization is as old as human culture. In Germany alone, there are more than 20,000 standards, affecting all spheres of everyday life. They are not only an important foundation for the manufacture of all kinds of products, but also play an important role in jurisdiction. The standards elaborated by voluntary amalgamations of industry and all interested groups, represent the status of a country's technology and are an important basis for drawing up contracts and for settling legal disputes. On the road to achieving a common European market, for which free trading in goods is an absolute prerequisite, standards are an important instrument for putting the guidelines issued by the European Commission into concrete terms
