International Electrotechnical Commission - IEC
"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. The IEC also administers three global Conformity Assessment Systems, IECEE, IECEx and IECQ for testing, certification and approval of equipment, systems and components to its International Standards. Wherever you find electricity and electronics, you find the IEC supporting safety and performance, the environment, electrical energy efficiency and renewable energies."
