This webinar will provide an overview of the Frankfurt Agreement, which defines the high-level strategy and in-depth processes between the IEC and CENELEC to harmonize International and European standards to the largest extent possible. This harmonization aims at supporting the European market while making use of global standards.
“Most countries in the world accept products that are built to IEC International Standards. This harmonization facilitates global trade and allows developed and developing countries to compete on an equal footing, levelling the playing field. This agreement with CENELEC, an important IEC partner, further boosts the efficiency of both organizations, making best use of resources and ultimately helps make the world a safer place.” (Frans Vreeswijk, IEC General Secretary & CEO)
