The DIN 7500 standard was first published in the late seventies and has been updated a number of times since. Simultaneously with the publication of DIN 7500-2 “guideline values for hole diameters” the standard for screws was named DIN 7500-1. However, most often the screws are just referred to as DIN 7500.
