About AFSEC

WHO SHOULD BECOME MEMBERS OF AFSEC?

All users of electrotechnical standards in African countries - electricity utilities, the national standards bodies, electricity regulators, consultants, contractors and suppliers of electrical equipment and services – should be participate in the activities of AFSEC, by forming a national electrotechnical committee in each country. Several countries already have fully established committees, either as members of the IEC, or through the IEC affiliate country programme for developing countries. National electrotechnical committees are the potential statutory members of AFSEC.
