International Electrotechnical Commission Technical Committee 72
IEC/TC 72 was initially established to fill the needs for international safety standards for automatic electrical controls for use in household appliances and similar equipment. The scope was recently expanded to include industrial applications. The USNC TAG was established to harmonize U.S. safety philosophies and practices within IEC/TC 72 with those of the European Union and Asia Pacific regions.
