SACCom: Open for Enrollment of New Representatives!

One of the main charters of the Standards Advisory and Coordination Committee (SACCom) is to provide technical liaison between the IEEE EMC Society Standards Committee and various non-IEEE entities involved with EMC Society standards activities. Individuals who participate in this committee are technically qualified individuals who are generally members of the IEEE EMC Society and who have demonstrated technical competence and interest in the activities (or also are members) of a particular non-IEEE EMC Society standards organization. Presently, the committee has representatives from a wide range of EMC disciplines, geographical locations, industries, and fields of work.
Examples include:
• CISPR (International Special Committee on Radio Interference)
• MIL (military, primarily the US military)
• RTCA (Radio Technical Committee on Aeronautics)
• SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers)
• IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission)
• ISO (International Organization for Standards)
• Aerospace
• Others
The contribution from the various representatives is summarized in a quarterly report and distributed to all interested individuals who would like to know the latest progress on the standards working groups. The reports and list of representatives are also posted in the SACCom website:
The committee is presently eager to recruit representatives from the following organizations:
• ETSI (European Telecommunications Standards Institute)
• CENELEC (European Electrotechnical Committee)
• ESDA (Electrostatic Discharge Association)
The committee is also open to representatives from other EMC standards committee working groups not mentioned here that would be interested in extending the “cross-pollination” efforts of this unique, but extensive group. If you are interested, please e-mail the SACCom Chair, David Guzman at for further information. EMC
