Task

The listed Advisory Committees report to the SMB (Standardization Management Board).

The role of SMB advisory committees, ACEA, ACEC and ACOS is to advise, guide and coordinate IEC technical work, under the auspices of the SMB in their respective areas - environmental issues, electromagnetic compatibility, and safety with the aim of ensuring consistency.

Members are technical committee representatives, as well as experts nominated by National Committees in the particular area concerned, and are appointed by the Standardization Management Board.

Advisory committees provide a forum for the discussion of problems of mutual interest between the representatives of technical committees having considerable interest in the scope of the advisory Committee. Close liaison is maintained with other technical committees concerned.

Task

Systems Approach
The multiplicity of technologies and their convergence in many new and emerging markets, however – particularly those involving large-scale infrastructure – demand a top-down approach to standardization, starting at the system or system-architecture rather than at the product level.

Therefore, the Systems Work will define and strengthen the systems approach throughout the technical community to ensure that highly complex market sectors can be properly addressed and supported.

It promotes an increased co-operation with many other standards-developing organizations and relevant non-standards bodies needed on an international level.

System standards, having implications for the IEC’s conformity assessment systems and processes, are also increasingly required in sectors such as environment, safety and health.

The Systems Evaluation Groups (SEG) identify new technical areas and anticipate emerging markets/technologies that require a systems approach as well as define and implement enhancements to the TC/SC structure for improved functionality, notably to improve coordination on issues that cross traditional boundaries.

Systems Committees (SyC) aim to extend the use of strategic or other horizontal groups to bridge areas covered by more than one or two TC/SCs.

TCs with a Systems Function remain unchanged and continue working on Systems.
