Welcome back,

NEIS are NECA's electrical quality and workmanship industry standards for electrical construction.

NEIS are used by construction owners, specifiers and contractors to clearly illustrate the performance and workmanship standards essential for different types of electrical construction. NEIS are also referenced throughout the National Electrical Code (NEC®).

Outreach for Underrepresented Interest Groups

NECA is reaching out for participants and reviewers in underrepresented interest groups for the NEIS development process.

NECA creates and revises several NEIS (ANSI approved standards) annually. We are looking for members in the underrepresented categories of producer, general Interest, and government in the revisions listed below. Please see a description of the categories below. If you feel that you would like to be involved in the review process, please contact Aga Golriz at 301-215-4549 or by email at aga.golriz@necanet.org

  • General Interest – Those who are not associated with electrical construction. This category typically includes professional and lay people employed by academic and scientific institutions, experts, government agencies, insurance companies, etc.
  • Producer – Those who are predominantly involved with the manufacture of products and systems installed by electrical contractors. This category usually includes manufacturers and trade associations.
  • Government – This category typically includes government agencies that contract for electrical construction work.
