Electrical and Computer Engineering: Codes, Specifications, and Standards

Codes, Specifications, and Standards

IEEE Standards

The IEEE Standards Association develops global industry standards in a broad-range of industries, such as power and energy; information technology; telecommunications; transportation; medical and healthcare; and nanotechnology. Our access is to active, archived, and withdrawn standards.

National Electrical Code

The NEC codifies the minimum requirements for safe electrical design, installation, and inspection. While the NEC is not itself a law, it is commonly mandated by state or local law.
