Áll standards now available on one platform

BRUSSELS - From January 1, 2023, NBN will also sell all standards for electrical engineering and electronics. NBN and the BEC signed an agreement to this effect yesterday. With this, all Belgian, European and international standards will be offered in one place.

Until now, the BEC (Belgian Electrotechnical Committee) was responsible for the sale of standards for electrotechnics and electronics and NBN (Bureau for Standardization) for all other standards. On Oct. 26, an agreement was signed whereby standards for electrotechnics and electronics will also be included in NBN offerings as of Jan. 1, 2023. Both Dirk De Moor, secretary general of the BEC, and Johan Haelterman, chairman of NBN's executive committee, are very pleased with this cooperation.

Switching to one central standards platform means better service and higher cost efficiency.

Adventageous for everyone

This change is a logical step that benefits everyone: 

  • Customers and companies can finally find all Belgian, European and international standards in one place.
  • BEC members and NBN customers enjoy a wider range of products and services.
  • BEC members can manage their existing collection on the NBN platform.

The development of electrotechnical and electronics standards will remain with the BEC. Also, BEC Technical Officers will still be the points of contact at the BEC for content-related questions about BEC standards.

Companies need simple solutions. With this important step, we are going to make life easier for a lot of people.
