lites.asia and the IEC
A large number of countries within the Asia region have national commitments to adopt International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards whenever appropriate. However, due to the current make-up of IEC management and technical committees, standards are not always developed in a way appropriate for use in the Asia region.
lites.asia was committed to assisting countries within Asia understand the IEC processes, and increasingly to influence the standards development process, by helping to increase the number of countries that became members of the IEC and by supporting active participation in the standards development process.
