About TC/SC liaisons

Reciprocal arrangements


IEC Technical Commitees and Submcommittees (TC/SC) maintain liaisons with a number of Organizations. In order to be effective, liaison operates in both directions, with suitable reciprocal arrangements. ( consult the list )


The desirability of liaison is taken into account at an early stage of the work.


The liaison organization accepts the policy based on the ISO/IEC Directives concerning copyright (see 2.13), whether owned by the liaison organization or by other parties. The statement on copyright policy is provided to the liaison organization with an invitation to make an explicit statement as to its acceptability. The cooperating organization is not entitled to make any charges for documents submitted.


The IEC co-operates with several international and regional bodies with the aim of encouraging implementation of its international standards and to reduce work overlaps.
