The address for future standardization

Standardization Council Industrie 4.0 as the key to the digital transformation of the industry

The Standardization Council Industrie 4.0 pursues the goal of initiating digital production standards in Germany and coordinating them nationally and internationally.

The initiative accelerates standardization processes and organizes and shapes the German Standardization Roadmap Industrie 4.0.

Constant exchange as the key to success

Addressing the opportunities and challenges of digitisation jointly and globally is a core idea in standardisation for Industry 4.0. With the GoGlobal Industrie 4.0 funding project, the BMWi has been supporting the global harmonisation of national Industrie 4.0 concepts since December 2017, as presented and formulated in the German Standardisation Roadmap Industrie 4.0 as a recommendation for action.
