ANSI Approves Acceptance Testing Specs Standard for Electrical Power Systems

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved the InterNational Electrical Testing Association's (NETA's) 2009 edition of Standard for Acceptance Testing Specifications for Electrical Power Equipment and Systems (ANSI/NETA ATS-2009). NETA, an accredited standards developer for ANSI, defines the standards by which electrical equipment is deemed safe and reliable. Its certified technicians conduct the tests that ensure this equipment meets the association's stringent specifications, while ANSI provides all concerned U.S. parties with an unbiased setting to unite and work toward common agreements. The route to create these voluntary standards is guided by ANSI's fundamental principals of consensus, due process, and candidness, and relies heavily upon data gathering and compromises among a broad spectrum of stakeholders.

Available for purchase as a bound manual, CD-ROM, or electronic download at www.netaworld.org, ANSI/NETA ATS-2009 is used when specifying and performing necessary tests to ensure that electrical systems and apparatus not only meet project specifications, but that the manufacturer of the equipment supplied a product that will perform safely and reliably for many years to come, NETA says.

"Anyone involved in the energization of electrical equipment should consider this document a must have," says Al Peterson, president of Utility Service Corporation. For more information on NETA, ANSI/NETA standards, or NETA's additional member services, contact Kristen Schmidt at (888) 300-6382 or via e-mail at kschmidt@netaworld.org.
