International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)

IHS Markit is your source for IEC standards and publications.

Founded in 1906, the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is the world’s leading organization for the preparation and publication of International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies. These are known collectively as "electrotechnology".

IEC provides a platform to companies, industries and governments for meeting, discussing and developing the International Standards they require.

All IEC International Standards are fully consensus-based and represent the needs of key stakeholders of every nation participating in IEC work. Every member country, no matter how large or small, has one vote and a say in what goes into an IEC International Standard.

IHS Markit is the source for IEC Standards, Recommended Standards and publications of the International Special Committee on Radio Interference (CISPR), Terminology, Microelectronics/Components/Switchgear, Insulation, Applications/Machines and Motors/Turbines, Generators, and Appliances (Electrical and Electronic). Also available are the committee's standards on the specification, design, and development of systems and management, organization, storage and retrieval of information.
