The Electrical Code Coalition (ECC) recently launched its new website, which strives to facilitate direct and full adoption, application, and uniform enforcement of the latest edition of the National Electrical Code.
“Unforeseen hazards directly impact our ever-changing electrical environment. That’s why IAEI fully supports the direct and full adoption of the latest edition of the National Electrical Code, and its commitment to an electrical safety system that protects persons and property from potential shock and fire hazards," said David Clements, CEO and executive director of the International Association of Electrical Inspectors. “The ECC website provides the necessary tools to ensure that our new products, technologies, and systems will, indeed, make our communities a safer place to live.”
Through its website, the Coalition offers a free "Adoption Support Kit," which can be used by promulgating agencies and local electrical safety advocates to support NEC adoption. Free read-only versions of the NEC and other National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) codes and standards can be accessed through the site. An interactive map also tracks NEC adoption in all 50 states.
The Electrical Code Coalition promotes widespread adoption of the NEC. Its current members are: Edison Electric Institute (EEI), the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI), Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC), International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), National Armored Cable Manufacturers Association (NACMA), National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), National Electrical Manufacturer's Association (NEMA), National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL). For more information, visit the organization's website.
