From the list given below, select the group that is the U.S. representative to the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC):A. ISA
The correct answer is A, “ANSI.” The American National Standard Institute (ANSI), through an internal committee called the U.S. National Committee of the International Electrotechnical Commission (USNC/IEC), acts as the nation’s representative to the IEC. The USNC serves as the focal point for U.S. interests in international electrotechnical standards, certification, and other related matters.
