German Standardization Panel (DNP) - report on indicators 2016


Based on representative data on German companies engaged in standardization and, increasingly, companies that only apply standards, this 2016 indicator report of the German Standardization Panel (German: Deutsches Normungspanel, acronym “DNP”) provides information on several aspects of standardization. The contribution of innovations to the competitiveness of businesses, as well as to other entrepreneurial dimensions, is undisputed. However, the benefits of standardization and the application of standards have not yet been fully recognized as a significant influencing factor – not least due to a lack of empirical investigations in this area. For this reason, the German Standardization Panel was set up in autumn 2011 by the German Society for the Promotion of Research on Standardization (FNS). The FNS promotes research on topics and questions related to standardization in order to make qualitative assessments on aspects regarding standardization policy. In the scope of the DNP, annual surveys are carried out to collect data on standardization activities and the application of standards by companies, which is then used to examine the impact of standardization and standards on various economic and social dimensions.

This year, DNP data from three survey waves were combined to establish a panel data set. Based on the unique data gathered, insights were gained on changes in standardization activities and the application of formal and informal standards from 2013 to 2015.
