Affiliate Country Programme

IEC Affiliates

IEC Programme for developing countries

 

Objectives

The Affiliate Country Programme reaches out to developing countries, giving them the opportunity to get involved with the IEC without becoming members. Countries participating in the programme benefit from free IEC International Standards for national adoption. IEC Central Office helps them become more aware of the benefits of using International Standards and more familiar with the work of the IEC.

 

 

The Affiliate Country Programme principal objectives:

  • Encourage greater awareness and use of IEC International Standards in developing countries
  • Help those countries understand and participate in the work of the IEC
  • Facilitate the adoption of IEC International Standards as national standards

 

Affiliates will be able to use relevant IEC International Standards and learn how to monitor relevant working documents, thereby taking a step by step approach to establishing an IEC NEC (National Electrotechnical Committee), if and when appropriate. Affiliate Countries are strongly encouraged to establish their NEC and will receive guidance from the Affiliate Secretariat if necessary.

 

An invitation letter is sent to any country interested in joining the Affiliate Country Programme.
