View this email in your browser

We want your expertise, ideas and visions for the future of standardization. Join in!

A special forum – in parallel with the standardization policy work level of the IEC General Meeting – dedicated to a lively discourse regarding the effects on standardization of current topics and questions will be provided for the first time by the DKE: the Reinvention Laboratory.

The standardization system is changing. Digitalization is changing our entire environment. Not only does this affect virtually all aspects of the electrotechnical sector, but also the procedures used to develop standards. At the same time, the expectations of the users of the standards are changing in terms of how the information is made available. The question is how to balance the demands of our fast-moving times with the thorough and often time-intensive work required to achieve consensus. In this context, the Reinvention Laboratory is intended as a forum to present and discuss a wide range of ideas and concepts, strategies and visions from the world of standardization. And this is where you come in: The Reinvention Laboratory needs your active contributions!
