Abstract

The new German Glass design standard DIN 18008 – parts 1 to 5 – was finally established in the beginning of 2015, being accepted by the authorities already a few months earlier. As the application is obligatory since then, a lot of experience could be gained in the meantime. Every standard has to pass several steps of control and revision before being approved. Nevertheless the actual application brings up new aspects and questions about certain details and the corresponding interpretation and intention of the standard. The following paper will discuss some important aspects of DIN 18008 in order to provide some clarification for the users of DIN 18008 and some input to the working groups of the future European glass standards as well as for the next review of the DIN 18008.
