Electrical Codes, Standards, Recommended Practices and Regulations

File Size: 4.89 Mb

It is intention of this text to provide the reader assistance in developing a basic understanding of the complex issue of codes, standards, recommended practices, and regulations for electrical power generation, transmission, and distribution in residential, commercial, industrial, and utility applications. General information is provided on the Canadian and American Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) responsible for the development of codes, standards and recommended practices. Basic outlines are also provided for standards development procedures; code enforcement areas; general code categories; and exposure of some titles for electrical engineering standards for power generation, transmission, and distribution in North America and internationally. Regional SDOs in Europe, Central and South America, and the Pacific Rim area were not examined in detail. The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) and International Organization for Standardization (ISO) SDOs are examined in some detail.

Information on the SDOs discussed was developed in part from the Internet websites for those organizations. Should additional information on those organizations be desired, the reader is referred to the SDO websites listed for those organizations in Chapter 1. The listed websites may also be used to research and purchase specific SDO standards documents.

Electrical generation, transmission, and distribution codes, standards, and recommended practices encompasses a large area of information. Some general codes, standards, and recommended practices information was utilized in some discussions; however, the reader should refer to those documents in total when attempting to develop information. SDO websites can be used to provide standards outline information, indexes, and normative references. That information can be extremely helpful in conducting general research in the selection and use of equipment and installation standards.
