Who we are

The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a not-for-profit, quasi-governmental organization, founded in 1906.

The IEC's members are National Committees, and they appoint experts and delegates coming from industry, government bodies, associations and academia to participate in the technical and conformity assessment work of the IEC.

In this section, find out more about the IEC's management structure, including the roles of the various management boards, the IEC Officers, as well as about the wide range of people coming from all over the world who are involved in the day-to-day work of the IEC.
