The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is responsible for standardization in the fields of electricity and electronics. The IEC currently has more than 80 members, which are national standards entities.
What are IEC standards?
They are international standards that are recognized, accepted, and implemented worldwide. The IEC, along with the ISO, are the international organizations that are responsible for developing standards for the world.
What are the advantages of IEC standards??
- Analyse the needs of the worldwide market, and promote standards and systems to ensure conformity, guaranteeing the quality of products and increasing the efficiency of processes.
- Contribute to the safety and health of people and environmental protection.
- Facilitate a broad geographic scope.
- They have been used as references in regulations to allow them to serve as legislative best practices in order to avoid creating technical barriers to trade.
- Maintain the requirements regarding the evaluation of conformity with technical regulations in different areas, such as: ISO/IEC 17025 General competency requirements for calibration and test laboratories.
Since the electrical sector is becoming increasingly interdependent, seeking electrical and electronic components that are more universal and that can be marketed around the world for assembly not in a single country but worldwide, compliance with IEC standards helps make it possible for all parts to fit safely into increasingly global value chains.
What cables at Cables RCT have IEC certification?
At Cables RCT we currently have IEC and Aenor certification for our RV-K and RZ1-K cables. These cables were designed in Spain and are well regarded in other countries, so they are backed by IEC certification. We are convinced that globalization represents the path to progress, so we are working to apply IEC standards in other areas of the organization.
