IEC will undertake a campaign to help the IEC community as well as external stakeholders better understand the importance of standards and conformity assessment in achieving the 17 SDGs. To help link the work of standardization and the SDGs, the IEC will revise its processes so that IEC technical committees better understand from the onset of the standardization process how their work contributes to the SDGs.

Our briefing paper Contributing to Sustainable Development Goals lists the IEC technical committees, IEC systems committees and IEC Conformity Assessment Systems which contribute to each of the SDGs. Some of the IEC International Standards which impact the SDGs are also listed. Click here to view the briefing paper.
