National Electrical Installation Standards, Standards as High as Your Own

The National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS®) started with a simple question: “What exactly is Good Workmanship?”. Electrical Contractors and their employees, as well as general contractors, engineers and building owners, see “Good Workmanship” referenced throughout their plans and specs. But no one had ever taken on the challenge of defining “Good Workmanship” when it comes to electrical construction. The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA®) took on that challenge in the late 1990’s and develop the NEIS®. Today, NECA® offers a variety of ANSI-Approved performance and workmanship standards for electrical construction. The library of NEIS® are used by construction owners, specifiers, and contractors to clearly illustrate the performance and workmanship standards essential for different types of electrical construction. NEIS® are also referenced throughout the National Electrical Code®
