In 1925, the German Institute of quality assurance and certification (Deutsches Institut für Gütesicherung und Kennzeichnung) developed the RAL colour matching system which grew to a very large number of colour tones over the decades. Periodically, new standards of colour are added. The intention was to give the paint and pigment industry assistance in the streamlining of their productions in order to avoid any coordination problems in the use of colours. The colour matching system proved to be so successful over the decades to come that it is now the standard colour guide in Germany and many other countries.
