The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is the world’s leading organization that
prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies. Close to 20 000 experts from industry, commerce, government, test and research labs, academia and consumer groups participate in IEC Standardization work.
Customers can then trust that the product or service they are purchasing is reliable, safe, compatible and of consistently high-quality.
The IEC is one of three global sister organizations (IEC, ISO, ITU) that develop International Standards for the world.
When appropriate, IEC cooperates with ISO (International Organization for Standardization) or ITU (International Telecommunication Union) to ensure that International Standards fit together seamlessly and complement each other. Joint committees ensure that International Standards combine all relevant knowledge of experts working in related areas.
“IEC Standards and conformity assessment programs – the key to international trade.”
“The IEC’s mission is to be globally recognized as the leading provider of standards, conformity assessment systems and related services needed to facilitate international trade and enhance user value in the fields of electricity, electronics and associated technologies.”
