The IEC 1906 Awards was established in commemoration of the foundation of the IEC and honors technical experts around the world whose work is fundamental to the IEC.
For the 2021 nominations, TC and SyC Chairs and Secretaries and CA Systems Chairs were invited to send names of candidates for the IEC 1906 Award by the end of March 2021. Nominees were chosen by TC Officers, taking into account advise from SC Officers. Up to five experts from each TC, SyC and CA System could be nominated.
Each expert who is granted this award has been nominated by the relevant technical committee officers, taking advice from the subcommittee officers as well. This means that this award is granted on the nomination by their industry peers. They receive this award because according to the Technical Committee they have made an exceptional recent contribution to the development of a specific work project.
