International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standards

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standards
International Electrotechnical Commission IEC publishes standards for technologies related to electrics and electronics, known as “electrotechnology”.

International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Standards are published standards for technologies related to electrics and electronics, known as “electrotechnology”.  Devices that use/produce electricity, or contain electronic components rely on standards to ensure they perform safely and as expected.

IEC standards cover a wide range of electronic technology from appliances and batteries, to solar energy and nanotechnology. The IEC also performs conformity assessments that verify components, systems, and other equipment meets or conforms to organization  standards.

About 20,000 industry experts, government personnel, researchers, and others are included in writing these international standards. You can learn more about International Electrotechnical Commission IEC and its standards on the International Electrotechnical Commission website.
