Stampa questa pagina


CEI (Italian Electrotechnical Committee) is a private, non-profit Association responsible at national level for technical standardisation in the electrotechnical, electronic and telecommunication fields. It participates, with a mandate by the Italian State, to the activities of the corresponding European standardisation organisation (CENELEC) and international one (IEC).

Founded in 1909 and formally recognized by the Italian Government and by the European Union, CEI proposes, elaborates, publishes and disseminates technical standards that, according to the Italian Law 186/1968, provide the presumption of conformity to the "rule of the art" of electrical products, systems, installations and processes.
