Draft Environmental Standards for Public Comment

The International Electro-technical Commission (IEC) has introduced a new process allowing anyone to comment on publically available standards. Comments can be submitted even if you are not part of the National Committee working on that standard or even whether your country is an active participant in the creation of that standard.

The documents listed below are those currently available for public comment and which are also related to environmental testing or sustainability topics. Anyone can register comments on publically available draft standards, by using the “Public Commenting on Draft Standards” button available on the home page of the International Electro-technical Commission (www.iec.ch). The button is on the right hand side of the gray bar, located about halfway down the home page. You need to register, but this is only so that any comments submitted this way will be forwarded via the appropriate National Committee.  If you register, you can also opt to receive weekly notification of any new draft standards publically available for comment. Currently there are over 50 standards listed for comment and the commenting period is usually 12 weeks.
