About the IEC General Meeting


The IEC General Meeting is a key annual event for the
IEC community. In a unique format, it brings together 1 000 or
more key players from all over the world for management as well
as technical meetings, creating exceptional opportunities for
information exchange and networking at all levels.


About the SMB

The SMB is responsible for the management of the standardization
work. It creates and sets the scopes of IEC technical committees
(TCs) and subcommittees (SCs). During SMB meetings, technical
committees report on their progress and discuss issues that
have arisen.

About technical committees


IEC TCs and SCs produce and ensure the maintenance of
IEC International Standards. With nearly 180 TCs and SCs
operating today, there are some 10 000 experts involved in IEC work.
The great majority come from industry, while others are from test and research laboratories, government, academia or consumer groups.
