Presentation: Development of an IEC International Standard and relevance to conformity assessment

This presentation provides a detailed overview of the development process of an IEC International Standard and how it facilitates testing and certification (conformity assessment).


Brochure: Standardization and conformity assessment – en

IEC runs four global Conformity Assessment Systems which operate schemes and programmes based on third-party testing and certification and mutual recognition agreements. Laboratories and certification bodies test and certify products, equipment, services and personnel competency against IEC International Standards, to ensure their reliability, interoperability with other products, services and installations, and that the relevant safety standards have been applied.

Brochure: A guide to conformity assessment for renewable energy test labs in the marine energy sector – en

Open water test facilities for tidal and wave energy convertors and labs for controlled testing have a critical role to play in the implementation of the IECRE Marine Energy Operational Management Committee. Collectively referred to as renewable energy test labs, these facilities can perform accredited tests to assess the performance, power quality, acoustics and loads in marine energy convertors according to technical specifications published by IEC TC 114.

Brochure: Cyber security – en

The aim of any cyber security strategy is to protect as many assets as possible and especially the most important – the “crown jewels”. Since it is not feasible, sensible or even efficient to try to protect everything in equal measure, it is important to identify what is valuable and needs greatest protection, identify vulnerabilities, then to prioritize and to erect defence-in-depth architecture that ensures business continuity.

Brochure: The IECRE – en, fr

IECRE is a Conformity Assessment System based on International Standards prepared by the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) for equipment and services used in renewable energy (RE) applications. The system aims to facilitate the international trade of equipment and services in the marine, solar photovoltaic (PV) and wind energy sectors, while maintaining the required level of safety. Each of these sectors will be able to operate IECRE Schemes that cover products, services and personnel, to provide testing, inspection and certification.
