NECA releases new standard for commissioning building electrical systems

Standard is the 27th volume in the NEIS series

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) recently released National Electrical Installation Standards (NEIS) NECA 90-2004, “Recommended Practice for Commissioning Building Electrical Systems” (ANSI). NECA 90-2004 is the 27th volume of the NEIS series.

According to Brook Stauffer, the organization’s executive director of standards and safety, this guide marks a new direction for the construction standards program. “Most other NEIS are product-based,” Stauffer says. “But NECA 90 takes a broad ‘horizontal’ perspective across the entire electrical installation.”

The standard is available by calling the NECA order desk at 301-215-4504 or visiting for a downloadable PDF.
