Codes & Standards

IEC Involvement

IEC is actively engaged in shaping codes and standards for electricians.

Through the national Codes & Standards Committee, IEC is able to become directly involved in a large variety of codes and standards activities, such as having two members sit on the 19 National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) 70E National Electrical Code (NEC) Making Panels, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA), the National Electrical Contractors Association, Inc. (NECA), the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC), and Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL).

Participation on these panels directly impacts the electrical industry.
