CANC/IEC is responsible for providing strategic advice on Canada’s participation in IEC to safeguard Canadian interests and identify priorities and emerging issues in the electrotechnical sector. Through CANC/IEC, Canadian stakeholders have an opportunity to provide strategic advice on standardization issues that impact the electrotechnical field and the development of the standardization direction for the electrotechnical sector nationally, regionally and international.
The CANC/IEC membership includes Canadian electrotechnical stakeholders represented by industry leaders, electrotechnical regulators, young professionals, industry associations, consortia, and standards development organizations representing the Canadian electrotechnical sector.
To ensure that the input represents Canadian interests, CANC/IEC solicits insight from its constituencies on standardization issues/interests to identify emerging standardization issues, topics, needs/gaps, or innovations occurring in electrotechnology areas to assess opportunities for new standardization solutions.
In our June 2020 meeting, CANC/IEC Council met to discuss the impact of COVID-19 in the electrotechnical sector and discussed standardization solutions that can support Canada in the recovery process. The outcomes of this meeting will provide a series of recommendations for SCC to consider for standardization priorities that support the recovery efforts in the electrotechnical sector.
