Global Engagement

Supporting collaboration, development and adoption of standards across the globe with industry, governments and the public.

INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION (IEC)

The IEC is a global organization (participation is by country) that prepares and publishes international standards for all electrical, electronic, and related technologies. These serve as a basis for national standardization and as references when drafting international tenders and contracts.

IEEE Agreement with IEC - IEC/IEEE Dual Logo Agreement
IEEE and IEC have an agreement in place to increase their cooperation in developing international standards. The IEC/IEEE Dual Logo agreement aims to optimize stakeholder resources in the development of standards where both IEC and IEEE have expertise, and to shorten time-to-market. The agreement facilitates processes for the joint development of standards and for the adoption of IEEE standards by IEC.
