Standards groups move toward cooperation

IEEE and IEC leaders announce plans to improve cooperation between the two groups, with the ultimate goal of co-developing international standards.

09/05/2008


In a joint statement , the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) declared their intention to work together to get international standards in sync. The move broadens an existing cooperation agreement, which lays out procedures for submitting and approving existing IEEE standards to IEC, to include a procedure permitting joint, parallel development of a project in both organizations leading to an IEC/IEEE International Standard.

The agreement is an addendum to the original IEC-IEEE Dual Logo Agreement, signed in October 2002; the first standard completed under the IEC/IEEE agreement was published in May 2004.
