Who we are



Young Professionals' Programme

Today there is clearly a need for the IEC to be ever-more responsive to the fast-changing markets by producing International Standards that meet needs better and reach markets more quickly. The Young Professionals' Programme helps the IEC embrace its global culture and develop its community further by encouraging an even greater range of people, of all ages and experiences, to participate in its work.

The IEC Young Professionals' Programme provides a gateway for young professionals all over the world to become more involved in IEC work. Participants are hand-picked by IEC National Committees to represent their country as future leaders on the IEC global platform. The programme explains IEC procedures and policies and demonstrates why participation at the global level is an essential strategic tool in today's world.

Go Ahead, Get Ahead

The aim of the programme is to enable participants to feel comfortable about taking that step forward to become more involved in the IEC and to have the opportunity to play a part in shaping the future of international standardization and conformity assessment. At the Young Professional Workshops, participants see the IEC in action and meet technical experts and managers from all over the world.
