The International Electrical Commission (IEC) has honoured Peter Still, Standards Manager, Industrial Systems and Solutions, Schneider Electric Limited, by presenting him with the prestigious IEC 1906 Award in recognition of the contribution he has made to the work of the organisation.
This award, which is named to commemorate the founding of the IEC in 1906, was created in 2004 by the IEC Executive Committee. It was established to honour IEC technical experts around the world whose work is fundamental to the IEC. It recognises exceptional and recent achievement related to the activities of the IEC.
Candidates for the IEC 1906 award are nominated by their peers on the IEC Technical Committees, with the final selection of the winners made by the highly regarded senior industry figures who constitute the IEC National Committee.
Peter Still's citation for the IEC 1906 award refers specifically to his contribution, as a highly experienced expert, to all fields of activity in TC44, the committee that deals with electrotechnical aspects of safety of machinery. In particular, it highlights his expertise in drafting standards.
The citation also recognises that, as Convenor of Maintenance Team MT62046, Peter has driven the work of the application standard for electrosensitive protection equipment to a successful conclusion, and that his outstanding commitment has contributed significantly to the reputation of TC44.
