IEC is actively engaged in developing codes and standards for the electrical industry.

Through the national Codes & Standards Committee, IEC is directly involved in a large variety of codes and standards activities, including representation on 18 code making panels of the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) 70 National Electrical Code (NEC).

IEC works closely with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) to develop the NEC. IEC also participates in the development of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and reviews standards created by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL).

IEC participation directly impacts the electrical industry.

The 2023 NEC is now accepting public input. To submit a change please click here.
