This issue of e-tech summarizes much of the 2013 IEC GM (General Meeting) proceedings in New Delhi, India.


Articles report on the President’s address to Council and the IEC activity report presented by IEC General Secretary & CEO, Frans Vreeswijk. SMB (Standardization Management Board), MSB (Market Strategy Board) and CAB (Conformity Assessment Board) activities in the past 12 months since the Oslo GM are also covered.


Further reports include the Young Professionals and the Industrializing Country workshops as well as the Affiliate Forum. The Council Open Session, which this year focused on Challenges of Power Quality, is also featured.


To complete the table of contents, an article provides feedback from the 8th International EEMODS (Energy Efficiency in Motor Driven Systems) conference, while another announces the recently-published second edition of ISO/IEC 27001, Information technology – Security techniques – Information security management systems – Requirements, which will help organizations enhance their information security.


Not to forget an extensive photo gallery of the New Delhi GM.
