Government Engagement

IEEE SA is committed to building bridges between the worlds of technology, standards and policy making. Through our Public Affairs activities and programs we help Policymakers and Government Officials stay current of the latest developments in IEEE standardization while working with them to understand and meet their needs.

With collaborative thought leaders in more than 160 countries, IEEE standards and programs help governments promote innovation, enable the creation and expansion of international markets and protect health and public safety.
