The National Electrical Code, NEC is the main document used to ensure electrical safety and to provide guidelines on electrical installations. The NEC is updated every three years. The adoption process is a continual process. The process of revising a new code begins with the adoption of a new document.
The IAEI is a major part of the outcome of the National Electrical Code. The IAEI membership is instrumental in submitting proposals for making the code a better document. IAEI has two representatives on every code making panel. The code panel members provide a valuable asset to the electrical industry and their dedication is appreciated.
