NEC and other applicable standards. This edition also includes periodic routine maintenance and troubleshooting procedures for these types of communications cabling systems.

About the National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS)

“NECA’s National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS) are the first performance and workmanship standards for electrical construction. The NEIS collection continues to grow and as new technologies emerge, the NEIS evolve and keep pace,” stated Michael Johnston, NECA Executive Director of Standards and Safety. Johnston also emphasized that “the standards provide significant value to electrical contractors and those in the electrical designing and engineering communities in that they reduce and often eliminate specification writing time.”
