  • 3. The IEC Structure 3
  • 4. The IEC mission“… to promote international cooperation on all questions of standardization …. in the fields of electricity, electronics and related technologies … which are specified for the purpose of trade and commerce … and to meet expectations for an improved quality of life.” IEC Stakeholders: the NATIONAL COMMITTEES:  CLIENTS  publish mandatory National Standards based on IEC publications  SUPPLIERS  Esperts are nominated by NCs  NCs finance IEC activity  NCs are responsible to mediate among different interests  The IEC adopts a VOLUNTARY CONSENSUS process 4
  • 5. The CONSENSUS conceptCONSENSUS: General agreement characterized by theabsence of sustained opposition to substantial issues by anyimportant part of the concerned interests and by a processthat involves seeking to take into account the views of allparties concerned and to reconcile any conflicting arguments.NOTE: Consensus need not imply unanimity. Customer - supplier agreement Consistent standard quality level Product and service interoperability Competitive, fair and democratic process (1 Country - 1 Vote) Effective Management of technical meetings 5
  • 6. The strength of the IEC:162 countries 81 Members 81 Affiliates > 90% world population > 95% world PIL > 98% world electrical power 6
  • 7. The role of Standards To define products, protocols and interfaces (“common languages”) to allow and promote the exchange of products and services in a safe, interoperable and effective way.To supply “trusted” To respond to answers in the needs of users and field of applied suppliers in a global technologies context of use 7
  • 8. Two contrasting needs…To publish standards up- To avoid publishingto-date with technological premature (or immature)evolution, to avoid the standards, which mayproliferation of “de facto” slow down technologicalstandards which may progress or block theresult difficult to eradicate market “GLOBAL RELEVANCE” 8
  • 9. Global RelevanceTo publish “relevant” and “global” standardswith the objective to direct manufacturers andusers toward safe, flexible, interoperable andcheap products, suited to: avoid proliferating limited-use (“parochial”) standards guarantee transverse compatibility stimulate competition in a multivendor environment guarantee time to market for standards broaden the market (“trade and commerce”) 9
  • 10. Global Relevance IS’s should not give preferenceIS’s should be performance to characteristics orbased rather than based on requirements of specificdesign or descriptive countries or regions whencharacteristics different needs or interests exist in other countries or regions IIS’s need to be relevant IS’s should not distort theand to effectively respond global market, have adverseto regulatory and market effects on fair competition, orneeds stifle innovation and technological development 10
  • 11. The IECQ Quality Assessment System Basic Specifications: common to multiple product families (terminology, definitions, test procedures, etc.) optical connectors 11
  • 12. The IECQ Quality Assessment System Basic Specifications: common to multiple product families (terminology, definitions, test procedures, etc.) optical connectors Generic Specifications: common to a single product family SC optical connectors 12
  • 13. The IECQ Quality Assessment System Basic Specifications: common to multiple product families (terminology, definitions, test procedures, etc.) optical connectors Generic Specifications: common to a single product family SC optical connectors Intermediate Specifications: referred to a specific product sub-family (test severity, acceptance criteria, performances, etc.) SC angled optical connectors 13
  • 14. The IECQ Quality Assessment System Basic Specifications: common to multiple product families (terminology, definitions, test procedures, etc.) optical connectors Generic Specifications: common to a single product family SC optical connectors Intermediate Specifications: referred to a specific product sub-family (test severity, acceptance criteria, performances, etc.) SC angled optical connectors Blank Detail Specifications: guidance for preparation of product detail specifications 14
  • 15. The IECQ Quality Assessment System Basic Specifications: common to multiple product families (terminology, definitions, test procedures, etc.) optical connectors Generic Specifications: common to a single product family SC optical connectors Intermediate Specifications: referred to a specific product sub-family (test severity, acceptance criteria, performances, etc.) SC angled optical connectors Blank Detail Specifications: guidance for preparation of product detail specifications Detail (Product) Specifications: detailed description of all characteristics and requirements needed to assess conformity and quality of a specific product SC angled optical connectors manufactured by the xyz supplier 15
  • 16. The TC86 innovation:from “product” standards…… proliferation of … freezingspecific standards development in related to single rapidly evolving products and technologies single suppliers… increasing the … impeding atime to develop global approach to and publish standardization standards 16
  • 17. … to the global standards system Interface standards: Performance standards: to guarantee transverse to define minimum compatibility performance of products (interexchangeability) as a function of the among products from application and of the different suppliers envioronmentTest and measurement Reliability standards standards: to assess test severity to define test and with the objective to measurement simulate use and to procedures valid for evaluate product different products capability of end-of-life performance 17
  • 18. The “System Approach” in the IEC TC/SCs can have different functions:  Product function – role of a supplier  System function – role of a customer  TCs/SCs may have both product and system functions depending on the system(s) in which they operate  No hierarchy between TC/SCs with different functions Encourage TC/SCs to better understand the standardization environment in which they operate Promote communication, reciprocity and cooperation between TC/SCs Minimize conflicts between TC/SCs 18
