NECA and the National Armored Cable Manufacturers Association (NACMA) have decided to put to rest the debate over AC and MC cable installation. The two sides have begun work on a joint standard to define best industry practices for installing type AC and MC cable. It will be published by NECA as one of the National Electrical Installation Standards series of ANSI-approved quality standards for electrical construction.

According to Brooke Stauffer, NECA executive director for standards and safety, the standard couldn’t come too soon. “As only our second NEIS on cable wiring methods, this book fills an obvious hole in our lineup.”
