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 and maintaining wiring devices should be in accordance with CECA 130-2011, Standard for Installing and Maintaining Wiring Devices.

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 the installation and maintenance procedures for wiring devices.

Products and Applications Included

This standard covers the installation and maintenance of low-voltage wiring devices permanently installed on building premises wiring systems for residential, commercial, and industrial applications in non-hazardous (unclassified) locations, such as for convenience receptacles, lighting switches, disconnect switches, and fixed, stationary, or portable electric signs. It applies to
a) wiring devices rated 600 V and less
b) receptacles
c) switches
d) timers
e) combination devices
f) cover plates
g) attachment plugs and plug connectors
h) occupancy sensors
i) dimmers
j) pin and sleeve connectors and receptacles
k) multi-outlet assemblies.

Products and Applications Excluded

This standard does not cover wiring devices that are installed in hazardous locations or are temporary installations. It does not apply to
a)arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs) or ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) – see CECA 169
b) floor service outlets
c) floor poke-through assemblies.

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.
