International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies


Advisory Committee on Electricity Transmission and Distribution



ACTAD deals with all matters concerning electricity transmission and distribution (T&D) which concern, or may potentially concern, more than one TC or SC. It may also have to deal with emerging broader subjects that may impact the T&D industry and IEC technical committees. ACTAD's responsibilities include:

  1. to recommend standardization activities and their relative importance in order to help TCs/SCs in their development;
  2. to identify technologies to be standardized in order to guide TCs/SCs in taking into account market needs;
  3. to advise the SMB in the coordination of TC/SC activities so as to improve their effectiveness.
