The National Electrical Safety Board's mission is work to ensure a high level of electrical safety and to prevent interference between electrical equipment. We have the vision of safe and interference-free electricity.
To achieve this vision, we are active in three specific areas:
- Safe and correctly functioning systems and products
- Sufficient public awareness
- The right expertise among professionals and players within the industry
Who decides on our mission?

'to prevent injury and damage caused by electricity to persons and property, and to prevent interference with radio communications and economic activities in the area of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).'
We are also assigned tasks through spending authorisations and other government decisions.
