International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

Body

From Wikipedia: International Electrotechnical Commission:

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a not-for-profit, non-governmental international standards organization that prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies – collectively known as "electrotechnology". IEC standards cover a vast range of technologies from power generation, transmission and distribution to home appliances and office equipment, semiconductors, fibre optics, batteries, solar energy, nanotechnology and marine energy as well as many others. The IEC also manages three global conformity assessment systems that certify whether equipment, system or components conform to its International Standards.

The IEC charter embraces all electrotechnologies including energy production and distribution, electronics, magnetics and electromagnetics, electroacoustics, multimedia and telecommunication, as well as associated general disciplines such as terminology and symbols, electromagnetic compatibility (by its Advisory Committee on Electromagnetic Compatibility, ACEC), measurement and performance, dependability, design and development, safety and the environment.

The IEC cooperates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the International Telecommunications Union (ITU). In addition, it works with several major standards development organizations, including the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) with which it signed a cooperation agreement in 2002, which was amended in 2008 to include joint development work.
