Vimal Mahendru has been elected Chair of the IEC Standardization Management Board (SMB) for a three-year term, starting in 2023. Mr. Mahendru will also become an ex officio Vice-President of the IEC for the duration of his term.

Mr. Mahendru is taking over from Ralph Sporer, who has served two three-year terms. During Mr. Sporer's tenure, the SMB has focused on digital transformation and undertaken work with ISO to develop so-called SMART standards. 

Mr. Mahendru says he will build on the achievements of Mr. Sporer's tenure. He has also committed to addressing emerging opportunities, strengthening existing partnerships and working to bring the global community together.

"We know what needs to be done to lead to a sustainable world. We just need to get things done! My tenure will be dedicated to delivering action in this Decade of Action by the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)," he says.

The Lord Kelvin Award laureate is the IEC special envoy for the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). He also chairs the Systems Committee for Low Voltage Direct Current (SyC LVDC).

Mr. Mahendru has been a member of many strategic groups inside the IEC and is currently a member of the IEC Business Advisory Committee (BAC).
