International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies

IEC Partners

 

 
World flag

Overview

The IEC cooperates with several international and regional bodies with the aim of encouraging implementation of its international standards and to reduce work overlaps. One of the IEC's principal partners is the WTO (World Trade Organization) in the context of the WTO TBT (Technical Barriers to Trade). The IEC works with its sister international standardization organizations, ISO (International Organization for Standardization) and ITU (International Telecommunication Union), on a bilateral basis in specific technical areas, and under the tripartite WSC (World Standards Cooperation). The WSC's primary goal is to promote the international standards system of IEC, ISO, and ITU.
