IEC Testing and Certification
IEC – who are they and what do they do?
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) produce and publish the International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies (commonly known as ‘electrotechnology’).
IEC’s International Standards are established through a consensus process involving 20,000 international experts from industry, government and leading testing laboratories, including BSI.
The standards, together with IEC’s conformity assessment systems, ensure that the thousands of electrical devices used world-wide every day perform, fit and work safely together.
IEC International Standards – The key to product acceptance and global trading
If you manufacture devices containing electronics or which use, produce or store electricity, demonstrating compliance with appropriate IEC International Standards offers several competitive advantages, from achieving acceptance in new overseas markets, to assuring consumers of a safe, reliable end product.
IEC standards address the safety, performance and compatibility of all electrical devices and systems, from switches, plugs and batteries through to complex data communication systems aboard trains, ships and planes.
