Conference: November 2, Palais des Nations, CH-1211 Geneva 10, Switzerland
Training: November 3, ISO Central Secretariat, Chemin de Blandonnet 8, 1214 Vernier, Geneva
The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) invite participants to learn how international standards can support public policy and regulation during a two-day conference and training session. The event is a unique opportunity for national and international policymakers to connect with standards developers and share experiences and best practices.
On Monday, November 2, UNECE will host an international conference exploring the benefits of referencing standards in regulations, how standards can help implement policy commitments taken at the global level (e.g. sustainability, resilience and development goals) and much more. From medical devices to food and energy, conference speakers are leaders in their fields.
On Tuesday November 3, ISO will host a half-day hands-on training course about the more practical aspects of how to reference IEC and ISO International Standards.
Participation is open to those who work in government or national standards bodies, or those wanting to connect with standards developers and national and international policy makers. Both events are free of charge. Spaces are limited and registration is on a first come, first served basis.
Please note that registration for the two events is separate. Interested participants should register here.
