NEC® adoption support kit test


The Electrical Code Coalition* (ECC), formed in 1996, comprises electrical and safety organizations dedicated to safe electrical installations and products wherever electrical power is used. The leaders of these organizations have signed proclamations that promote the safety objectives of the Electrical Code Coalition. Most of these organizations have local chapters or other grassroots representation in all 50 states with members who live and work in those states. The resources on this page can be used by promulgating agencies and local electrical safety advocates to support adoption of the National Electrical Code®. Join the Electrical Code Coalition.
