Putting Regional Standardization in a Global Context – Focus on United States

The 22nd General Meeting of the CANENA Council will take place in Washington, DC, USA February 26-27, 2014. This will mark the culmination of a three-year circuit of meetings that started in Mexico City in 2012 and proceeded to Montreal, Canada in 2013 seeking to draw intense focus on both challenges and opportunities to further cooperation in electrotechnical standardization.

Each year, U.S. industry priorities become more globally directed and at the same time, to outside suitors, the U.S. and the broader and increasingly harmonized regional market has never been more attractive and accessible. The 2014 meeting program will focus on the state of electrotechnical standardization in the United States but will enable us also to relate what we’ve learned over the past three-years to truly put our regional cooperation into a global context.
