NBN and BEC join forces


All standards now available on a single platform

As of January 9, 2023, NBN will also sell all standards in the field of electrical engineering and electronics. The NBN and the BEC signed an agreement to this effect on 26 October 2022. All Belgian, European and international standards will now be available on a single platform.

Until now, the BEC (Belgian Electrotechnical Committee) was responsible for the sale of electronics and electrotechnics standards, while the NBN (Bureau de Normalisation) was responsible for the sale of all other standards. This agreement was signed to include standards for electrical engineering and electronics in the NBN's offering from 9 January 2023.

Both Dirk De Moor, secretary general of the BEC, and Johan Haelterman, chairman of the NBN Executive Committee, are delighted with this collaboration.

"Companies need simple services. With this important step, we will make life easier for many people." Johan Haelterman - NBN

"The move to a centralized standards platform will ensure better service and service and cost efficiency". Dirk De Moor - BEC

Everyone wins!

This is a logical step that will benefit everyone:

  • customers and companies will finally find all Belgian, European and international standards in one place
  • BEC members and NBN customers will benefit from an expanded offer and service
  • BEC members will be able to manage their existing standards collections on the NBN's online platform

The BEC will continue to be responsible for the development of standards in the electronic and electrotechnical field. In addition, the Technical Officers will continue to be the dedicated contact points for the BEC for substantive questions on BEC standards.
