ELECTRICAL CODE INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION

 

The National Electrical Code and the National Electrical Safety Code govern the installation of our nation’s electrical system.  When an accident or fire occurs, interpretation of these codes can be critical to determining the cause.  Our engineers have comprehensive training in the interpretation and application of these national codes.  

Codes and the Law
The National Electrical Code (NEC) is adopted into law in most jurisdictions. However, the code is updated every three years. In addition, some jurisdictions adopt more stringent codes along with the NEC. The code that governs a building is the code that was adopted at the time the building was built. Issues like these are important considerations when evaluating an electrical system after a fire.

Experience and Training
Our engineers get specific training on the NEC and its updates. In addition, we keep a complete library of all versions of the NEC and National Electrical Safety Code (NESC). We use these codes every day in analyzing equipment and systems. We can evaluate your problem in light of the codes that are not only industry standards, but also law in many parts of the country.
