In its Patents and Standards Reading Room, TIB has large collections of standards issued by German (e.g. AD, BAZ, DVGW, FGSV, VDE, ZVDH), international (ISO, ITU) and foreign (ASTM, JIS, SIA) institutions.

Copies of guidelines issued by the Association of German Engineers (VDI guidelines) can be ordered or supplied on special VDI photocopy paper.
An extra fee of € 0.65 per page is charged for this service. DIN standards can be viewed on site. However, only members of Leibniz Universität Hannover are permitted to make copies.

TIB also has a complete collection of over 11,000 translations of Russian GOST and SNiP standards, published pre-1990. The titles of some of the translated GOST are compiled in the list GOST with titles (Excel file).

A list of translated SNiP can be found in the index translated SNiP (PDF).

As a rule, individual standards are not shown in the TIB Portal. For this reason, when ordering standards, please select the option "Order without search" and enter all available details in the order form.

Member of Leibniz Universität Hannover may use the Perinorm Online database featuring full-text access to DIN standards (exception: standards labelled VDE).
