National Committees

Upon admission, every IEC Member – one National Committee per country - promises to fully represent all private and public national interests in the field of electrotechnology at the global level in IEC standardization and conformity assessment activities.

The IEC offers them a neutral, independent international forum where often globally renowned experts from industry, government, academia and user groups can sit together and find consensus on solutions to broad technical challenges.

 

Benefits of membership

The key benefits of membership come from participating in the development of the standardization and conformity assessment work of the IEC. By participating in the creation of a standard, an NC can be sure that the interests of its country have been taken into account.

 

Those involved in IEC standardization work come from all areas of the market and each chooses to participate for various reasons.

Membership levels

IEC Full Member

Any country which can demonstrate that its National Committee has been constituted in accordance with the IEC Statutes and Rules of Procedure may apply to become an IEC Full Member.  IEC Full Members, after paying their yearly membership fee, have the possibility to send experts to participate actively in any technical committee/subcommittee of their choice. They are also able to apply for management positions and functions in the IEC and have voting rights in the IEC Council.


IEC Associate Member

Some countries can opt to become an IEC Associate Member. IEC Associate Members can access all working documents and opt to send experts to participate in a limited number of technical committees/subcommittees. They cannot occupy management positions and functions within the IEC and do not have voting rights in the IEC Council.

Participation

Individuals or companies can’t become a member of the IEC. They can only participate in the IEC via their National Committee.

If you are interested to contribute to IEC work in standardization or conformity assessment in an IEC Member country, contact your NC.
 

If you are in a country that is not yet an IEC Member, contact the IEC to investigate how you can get involved: info@iec.ch
 

The IEC also runs the Affiliate Country Programme, which allows developing or newly industrializing countries to participate in IEC work without the financial burden of membership.

Experts & delegates

Experts

Individuals with specialist knowledge in a technical field and who are delegated by their Country’s National Committee (NC) to participate in IEC work.


IEC Member countries can opt to send experts to participate in technical areas that are of interest to them.


Some organizations which have a formal relationship with the IEC can also appoint experts to certain working groups and project teams of technical committees (TCs) and subcommittees (SCs).


Experts participate in IEC technical work in a personal capacity and do not represent their company/organization or NC.


Procedures to appoint experts are described in the IEC Directives.

 

Delegates

Delegates participate in TC/SCs to represent the interests of an NC.


Each NC assigns a Head of delegation to speak and vote on behalf of the NC during the TC/SC meeting. Other members of the NC delegation may speak but not vote, every country has only a single vote.
