National Electrical Installation Standards
Standards as High as Your Own

Technical Review

Technical Subcommittees are responsible for all National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS) within their scope. They function as review groups for draft standards and operate by mail. Membership in TSCs is open to all interested persons, both NECA members and other experts.

To join, simply e-mail us at neis@necanet.org. Please specify which subcommittees you wish to serve on, and give us your complete contact information (name, address, phone, fax, e-mail). You will then receive draft NEIS for review as they are developed.

Standards shown below without publication dates are under development.
