International Electrotechnical Commission
IEC is the acronym for International Electrotechnical Commission.
A non-profit, non-governmental international standards organization that develops and publishes consensus-based international standards for electrical, electronic, and related technologies. Founded in 1906, the IEC’s mission is to promote international cooperation in the field of electrotechnology, ensuring the development of consistent and high-quality standards across the globe.
IEC standards cover a wide range of technologies, including power generation, transmission, and distribution, renewable energy, home appliances, office equipment, audio/video systems, semiconductors, and many others. By establishing uniform standards, the IEC helps to facilitate international trade, improve product quality and safety, and foster innovation and technological development.
