The International Electrotechnical Commission – National Committee of the Philippines (IEC-NCP), through the Bureau of Philippine Standards (BPS), opens the membership to all interested management and technical staff as well as experts of companies/ organizations in the field of electrotechnology to participate in the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) related activities and BPS Standards, Technical Regulations and Conformity Assessment Procedures (STRACAP) programs and initiatives to broaden engagement and address the evolving needs of the electrotechnical industry.
The IEC NCP is a committee organized by the Department of Trade and Industry through the BPS which represents Philippines’ electrotechnical interests and serves as the focal point for developing consensus position of the country. It also represents the country's electrotechnical stakeholders in its interactions with the IEC as well as the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), Underwriters Laboratories, ASTM International, and other international standards development organizations. It is composed of representatives from different electrotechnical stakeholders, including government agencies concerned with electrical and electronic standards development or application, power generation and distribution authorities, manufacturers, research and development institutions, relevant professional and teaching associations or institutions, consumer organizations, and conformity assessment bodies.
“As the National Standards Body and IEC-NCP Secretariat, the BPS facilitates the expansion of the National Committee to ensure a balanced representation of all relevant private and public electrotechnical interests and create possible solutions and improvements to electrotechnology not only for a more efficient global trade,” said BPS Director Neil Catajay.
National Committee membership is free and offers a range of advantages including access to technical advancements and opportunities for leadership roles and extensive networking. Additionally, it enables engagement within a dynamic community of customers, manufacturers, technical specialists, and government representatives. Furthermore, it establishes an inclusive environment and encourages collaboration among various electrotechnical entities, regardless of their market presence, scale, or impact.
