The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a global organization that publishes standards for electronic and technical equipment developed for consumer markets. IEC members include dozens of nations around the world. IEC standards lead to a more consistent core standard for different kinds of electronic and technical products.
As a global leader in promoting key standards for IT, the IEC complements other organizations like the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), which develops a range of standards for enterprise operations, and the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), which deals with telecom standards. These groups work individually and in tandem to promote responsible technological development worldwide.
