Standards Management


Standardization in Germany is an integral part of research and innovation processes. Professional formal and substantial research are unavoidable.

The PNZ is your contact for support when looking for standards and technical regulations.


Standards on Demand

RWTH members and students can order standards and technical rules free of charge through our service Standards on Demand. If our collection does not have the standards you need, they can be ordered electronically and delivered via email.

When placing your order, please remember that standards are very expensive and to only order what you really need.



Standards Research

Those who do not want to do the research themselves, can order reasonably-priced formal or substantial standards inquiries from us.

Standards Monitoring

Through a monitor search, we also offer continuous inquiries of all recently created, changed, or withdrawn standards and technical regulations for a profile tailored to your needs.
