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 IEC’s standards work. It creates and sets the scopes of IEC TCs (Technical Committees) and SCs (Subcommittees). During SMB meetings, TCs report on their progress and discuss issues that have arisen.


About the CAB

The CAB is responsible for managing the IEC’s CA activities, including overseeing the IEC CA Systems. During CAB meetings, members discuss the CA policy and hear from the CAB’s working groups. The three IEC CA systems report on their progress and means to promote their various activities.

About Technical Committees (TC)


IEC TCs and SCs produce and ensure the maintenance of IEC International Standards. With some 177 TCs and SCs operating today, there are 10 000 experts involved in the IEC’s standardization work.
The large majority have an industrial background, while others are from test and research laboratories, government offices, academic institutions or consumer groups.
