Electrical codes and standards

The NFPA® family of codes and standards that deal with electrical issues are as dynamic as the subjects they address—including NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC®), NFPA 70B, Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance, and NFPA 70E®, Standard for Electrical Safety in the Workplace®. These extensive documents reflect changing industry needs and evolving technologies, and are supported by research and development, as well as the practical experience and input of your peers in the field. This commitment to keeping you current also manifests in brand new products like NFPA 78, Guide on Electrical Inspections, which covers the minimum criteria to aid in organizing and conducting electrical inspections, as well as NFPA 1078, Standard for Electrical Inspector Professional Qualifications, which identifies minimum job performance requirements for electrical inspectors.
