IEC National Advocacy Efforts

Codes & Standards

IEC is actively engaged in developing codes and standards for the electrical industry.

Through the national Codes & Standards Committee, IEC is directly involved in a large variety of codes and standards activities, including representation on 18 code making panels of the National Fire Protection Association's (NFPA) 70 National Electrical Code (NEC).

IEC works closely with the International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) and the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) to develop the NEC. IEC also participates in the development of the National Electrical Safety Code (NESC) and reviews standards created by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL).

IEC participation directly impacts the electrical industry.

Code Making Process

A new edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC) is developed every three years in what is called a “code cycle.” The NEC is composed of 18 Code making panels (CMP) with IEC representatives on each panel as well as manufacturers, inspectors, users, installers, labor, consumers, testing labs, and special experts.

Legislative Affairs

As merit shop contractors, there are certain legislative issues that directly impact the business of IEC members. Labor, energy, tax, jobs, and workforce development are all major political issues taking place at the national level that have the ability to greatly affect the electrical contracting industry.

Regulatory Affairs

There are a number of federal regulatory agencies whose actions and decisions may directly impact your business, the electrical trade, and the merit shop.

Many recent proposed new regulations have the potential to be costly and burdensome on IEC members, particularly smaller businesses. IEC makes sure to actively weigh in on any proposed regulatory changes affecting the electrical industry to ensure merit shop concerns are taken into consideration by key agency decision-makers.
