IEC Conformity Assessment Systems

Global markets - a big step closer

The IEC CA (Conformity Assessment) Systems - IECEE, IECEx, IECQ and IECRE - each cover a dedicated segment of electrotechnology. Their ultimate objective is to facilitate global product acceptance by means of one test, one certification and, when appropriate, one mark valid in all markets.


Each of the Systems offers CA Schemes based upon IEC International Standards and other specifications when approved by the CAB (Conformity Assessment Board).


In this section you will find more information about how the IEC CA Systems work and what makes them so efficient; their guiding principles and how to select the right System for a given product.
