It develops and produces international consensus-based requirements and handles assessment methods for those electronics, electrical & related technologies, collectively referred to as “electrotechnology.” IEC publications act as a framework for national standardization and as references when drafting international contracts, tender documents, and so on.
Representatives of the IEC show up from every region of the world. They serve the interests of their nation, business, corporation, regulatory authorities, educational institutions, and much more. Additionally, via its Affiliate Country Program, the IEC also introduces new nations.
