How some visionary bright men had the idea to establish a Mutual Recognition Agreement? What was the direct cause of the establishment of such a body? 14
Local – Regional – Global Conformity assessment, perceived slow, steady, bureaucratic Conformity assessment models were developed in isolation Due to increased global trade, manufacturers identified the need to find improvements in efficiency and profitability
Target: One test Target: One certification Target: One mark Achieved: One test Achieved: One international certification Achieved: One or more certification marks as needed or direct market acceptance by Regulators, Customs, Retailers, Buyers, Vendors, etc.
The IECEE Schemes are intended to reduce obstacles to international trade which arise from having to meet different national certification or approval criteria. 17

The OIML and the IEC have agreed to consult each other on any technical issues of joint interest and shall provide each other with any information or documentation concerning matters of mutual interest, particularly concerning legal metrology related to standardization and conformity assessment within the IECEE.
The need to have a strategic global market relevance. The need to position international standardization and Conformity Assessment as a strategic business tool. The recognition that global reach is not an easy objective. The acceptance that innovation and adding business value takes hard work and open collaboration. The peoples of the world recognize that standardization and Conformity Assessment improve their lives. The National Committees are the foundation for achieving national and global relevance.
We are at the forefront of new exciting challenges in Conformity Assessment and the IECEE System is aiming at to be the right player, a player that can be trusted. IECEE takes Conformity Assessment Further! 43
