Connecting Communities – Reinvent Standardization:
The 80th IEC General Meeting 2016

The 80th IEC General Meeting to be held from 10 to 14 October 2016 in Frankfurt am Main is the annual event highlighting international standardization activities in the electrotechnical sector. This major international event brings together the working parties and decision meetings of all the main players on the IEC Campus 2016 – and gives them an opportunity to decide on current issues and the future directions and strategies of the IEC.

The German National Committee of the IEC is organizing the General Meeting for the seventh time. This is due, in no small part, to the great responsibility shouldered by Germany as one of the key global players in the electrotechnical sector.

Like its predecessors, the 80th IEC General Meeting 2016 will host numerous technical meetings designed to drive forward current standardization projects. In addition, the German National Committee (DKE German Commission for Electrical, Electronic & Information Technologies of DIN and VDE) will organize accompanying content-related, communication and emotional highlights, aimed at bringing delegates to the General Meeting together and raising the many different issues facing the future of standardization.
