The InterNational Electrical Testing Association (NETA) was founded in 1972 to establish uniform testing procedures for electrical equipment and apparatus. Since then, NETA has served the electrical testing industry by offering accreditation of third-party electrical testing firms, and certifying electrical testing technicians. NETA produces standards for ANSI, the American National Standards Institute; however, their scope of standards activity is different from that of IEEE, NECA, NEMA and UL, since it takes national as well as international standards into account. NETA firmly endorses global standardization, and their standards may be used internationally with confidence.
NETA's published standards include 'Maintenance Testing Specifications', and 'Acceptance Testing Specifications' for electrical power equipment and systems as well as 'Electrical Commissioning' and 'Electrical Testing Technician' standards.
