NMEA gains international recognition

The National Marine Electronics Association was named a "liaison 'D' organization" by the International Electrotechnical Commission, an international standards and rule making organization for all electronic products and services, including marine electronics.

"This means the NMEA will have a seat at the table as standards and rules are considered and formulated for the marine electronics industry," said Steve Spitzer, NMEA technical director, in a statement.

As a liaison organization for the IEC, the NMEA will be able to make technical contributions and participate actively in selected working groups, project teams and maintenance teams, Spitzer said.

The NMEA is required to be multinational in its objectives and standards development activities. It is also required to have a sufficient degree of representation within its defined area of competence, Spitzer said.
