IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission)
In our daily lives, we all use dozens of
electrical and electronic devices. Whenever these are turned on, a cascade of
invisible “events” make the device work. Those events are governed by standards
– agreed-upon rules that guide their design, how they are manufactured and
tested so that they work safely as intended, everywhere in the world.
(International Electrotechnical Commission) is the leading global
organization that prepares and publishes international standards for all
electrical, electronic, and related technologies – collectively known as
“electrotechnology”. The IEC also manages conformity assessment systems that
