NEMA Publishes Evaluating Fire- and Heat-Damaged Electrical Equipment

The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) recently published Evaluating Fire- and Heat-Damaged Electrical Equipment, a guide that provides information on how to evaluate electrical equipment that has been exposed to heat and fire residue through fire, firefighting activities, or close proximity to fire.

This guide is useful for suppliers, installers, inspectors, and users of electrical products. Before this publication, little guidance was available for installers and inspectors on how to evaluate electrical equipment that had been exposed to heat and fire residue.

Evaluating Fire- and Heat-Damaged Electrical Equipment may be downloaded at no cost on the NEMA website.
