He will hold this position for another three years from 2019. “I am thankful for the trust of the IECEE’s members and look forward to being able to carry on in this position,” said Niedziella. He has been managing the IEC conformity assessment system, involving 56 countries and 550 testing and certification bodies, since 2016. Their goal is to simplify and improve the reciprocal recognition of testing and certification service providers in order to simplify the international trade of electronic and technical equipment and components. For the current and future Chairman, Wolfgang Niedziella, the most important matter is the recognition and acceptance of the IECEE especially by ministries and state organizations.
