This week I have the privilege of attending the International Electrotechincal Commission’s 80th General Meeting as the International Chairman of IEC TC78 Live-Working which has 35 standards/publications including Arc Flash Protection.
The IEC prepares and publishes International Standards for all electrical, electronic and related technologies. Since the Arc Flash Forum is an international community, here is this week’s question:
Do you (your company) use any electrical equipment/methods based on IEC standards?
