IEC Standards

IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) Testing & Certification

What is IEC Testing?

IEC stands for International Electrotechnical Commission. IEC provides a standardized approach to testing and certification. IEC testing brings together the agreed-upon set of rules, specifications, and terminology that allow manufacturers to have their devices tested for conformity. Testing a product or device to a Standard then allows that one assessment to provide access to several markets.  F2 is able to verify that a product or system conforms to IEC International Standards. F2 specializes in the testing and certification that are required to bring a product to market.

F2 Labs can assist you in testing your electrical products to the applicable IEC standards. The IEC is the world’s leading organization for the preparation and publication of International Standards for all electrical, electronic, and related technologies.

We can provide you with the necessary IEC 60601-1, IEC 60601-1-2, and more testing and certifications to ensure that your product is compliant with these International Standards:
