Description

Foreword

The Canadian Electrical Installation Standards™ (CEIS™) have been adopted from the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) National Electrical Installation Standards™ (NEIS™) in the United States. These NEIS™ have been reviewed by a Canadian technical committee assembled to Canadianize the standards by referencing the requirements of Canadian Standards Association (CSA) C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CEC, Part I) and the methods used for electrical installations across Canada and to find opportunities to harmonize with the United States, where possible.

CEIS™ are intended to improve communication and consistency among designers, engineers, general contractors, specifiers, purchasers, and suppliers of electrical construction services. They define a minimum baseline of quality and workmanship for installing electrical products and systems. CEIS™ are intended to be referenced in contract documents for electrical construction projects. For this standard, the following language is recommended:

General work practices for installing steel conduit (rigid and EMT)should be in accordance with CECA 101-2011, Standard for Installing Steel Conduit (Rigid and EMT).

Use of CEIS™ is voluntary, and the Canadian Electrical Contractors Association (CECA) assumes no obligation to or liability for users of this publication. Availability of a CEIS™ on any given subject does not preclude any member or non-member of CECA from specifying or using alternative construction methods permitted by applicable regulations. CEIS™ should be considered best practice standards for the electrical contracting industry.

Scope

This standard describes installation procedures for steel rigid metal conduit (RMC) and steel electrical metallic tubing (EMT). Conduit with supplementary PVC coating (i.e., Robroy®) is also covered.

Purpose

This standard is intended to enhance electrical safety by
a) aiding installers in meeting requirements for neat and workmanlike installation
b) reducing future repair needs
c) providing for future expansion to avoid electrical overload
d) creating an installation that will protect the wire conductors from mechanical abuse
e) providing electrical continuity of the raceway system.

Exclusions

This standard does not cover any types of rigid aluminum raceways. For installation procedures for aluminum RMC, see CECA 102.

General requirements for installing electrical products and systems are described in CECA 1, Standard for Good Workmanship in Electrical Construction. Other CECA Canadian Electrical Installation Standards™ (CEIS™) provide additional guidance for installing particular types of electrical products and systems.
A complete list of CECA CEIS™ is provided in Annex B.
