Mission Statement

The Empire Chapter of IAEI strives to be a respected and an accessible resource to provide education in the understanding and use of the National Electrical Code and related standards contributing to the electrical trade industry. The Chapter’s goals are to promote safe and proper electrical installation practices with the use of information provided by its members with integrity, experience, and education. The Empire Chapter IAEI supports quality electrical installations and inspections.

The Empire Chapter IAEI, a respected and accessible resource, can assist the AHJ in implementing the New York State Building Code by providing education related to the use of the National Electrical Code and associated standards. Refer to the Chapter’s support paper to AHJ’s in its territory and its support of the national position statement on the value of quality electrical inspections [see Resource Library].

News to Know!

The 2008 NEC is contained in the 2010 Building Code of NYS.


Electrical inspectors need to be qualified. New utility requirements for inspection agencies are established for some utilities and others soon in NYS to require the local AHJ to qualify those who do electrical inspections in their municipality pursuant to NYS Building Code administration requirements. Check with your local utility and get informed!


NFPA 70E applies to all who meet the NEC definition for qualified person doing work on electrical systems of premises wiring. These are OSHA requirements – see OSHA 1910.333. We had a well attended seminar on February 16th, 2012 in Syracuse; let us know if another is needed!
