Hundreds of responses received

The response to the competition was huge. In November alone, 968 people qualified for the draw, then in December a further 807 customers placed their orders on the IEC Webstore.


The IEC Customer Service team kept track of what was happening and relayed the news on their Twitter account,, putting a photo on the IEC Facebook page.

Lucky green touch winners

At the beginning of January 2012 the names of the ten lucky winners were "drawn out of the hat".

So, today, there are ten new owners of an IEC branded universal solar charger. They are able to connect and recharge their various devices using renewable energy generated by the sun in all four corners of the earth. Congratulations to all those lucky winners!

IEC Webstore

The IEC Webstore is structured so as to allow users to purchase IEC publications directly in either electronic or paper format.

It also provides access to a broad range of additional information on International Standards for electrical, electronic and related technologies.

The free preview function and advanced search tools make the IEC Webstore the ideal place for anyone who is looking for material on a set subject, needing to search for the latest publication concerning a particular technology, for a standard produced by a specific TC (Technical committee) or for information linked to ICS Codes, publication date references and so on.
