General Meetings

Every year the IEC’s standardization and conformity assessment work leads to a week-long meeting – the IEC General Meeting. At this event stakeholders come together in an international setting to decide on current issues and future directions and strategies for the IEC. The General Meeting has a unique format, combining management and technical meetings and bringing all the key player together on one stage.
