Committee: GEL/101 Electrostatics

Scope

Under the direction of the British Electrotechnical Committee and the Standards Policy and Strategy Committee, is responsible for standardization in the field of electrostatics and for providing the UK input into IEC/TC101 and CENELEC/TC101 which provide general guidance on test methods to evaluate the generation, retention and dissipation of electrostatic charges; ascertaining the effect of electrostatic discharges; methods of simulation of electrostatic phenomena for testing purposes; requirements for design and implementation of handling areas or procedures, equipment, and materials used to reduce or eliminate electrostatic hazards or undesirable effects. Limitations and exclusions: The simulation of electrostatic discharges applied to powered electric and electronic equipment, systems and installations which is covered by IEC/TC 77.
