NEIS are the only quality and performance standards for electrical construction that address the workmanship issues. They are used primarily by electrical contractors, consulting engineers, facility managers, and professionals who design and specify for electrical construction projects. With their installation detail, illustrations and thorough explanations, NEIS are also a valuable training tool for electrical construction industry.

The Yearbook CD, Vol. 13 (Index # 2000-17) delivers the complete set of NEIS, including updated and new standards series through the third quarter of 2017. Several NEIS in the yearbook have been revised and expanded to align with the current edition of the National Electrical Code and other applicable standards.

There are more essential standards in development, including standards related to designing, installing, maintaining and operating microgrids as well as installing new generations of light control devices and systems. The yearbook includes the complete library of NEIS and the new NECA 416, Recommended Practice for Installing Energy Storage Systems (ESS). 

“NECA’s family of NEIS has grown as new trending technologies emerge,” said Michael Johnston, NECA’s Executive Director of Standards and Safety. “NEIS are continually evolving and keeping pace with contractors’ work and customers’ expectations. The standards are constantly providing significant value to those in the electrical designing and engineering communities. NEIS help professionals in developing design specifications by reducing and, in some cases, eliminating specification-writing time.”  

The NEIS Yearbook CD, Vol. 13 is $150 for NECA members, $300 for other purchasers. The price is a significant savings as compared to purchasing each of the standards as stand-alone items.
