What the IEC does
IEC International Standards allow governments, companies, and test laboratories to verify that a certain product or system conforms to the requirements that are described in a Standard.
The IEC is the only organization in the world that provides a true international standardized form of certification. IEC Conformity Assessment Systems are the largest and best known multilateral agreements based on one-time testing of products globally and the most direct way to most markets.
This single set of rules and procedures avoids unfair disadvantages when products enter different countries. It also helps achieve testing that is transparent, predictable, comparable among countries and more affordable.
