This standard describes installation procedures for
commissioning common newly installed or retrofitted building
electrical systems and equipment. It defines the process of
commissioning building electrical systems and provides sample
guidelines for attaining optimum system performances that conform
to design, specification, and industry accepted codes and
standards. This standard is not intended to cover commissioning
processes for every type of electrical system and references other
specific NEIS documents where such information is
This standard does not cover procedures for commissioning
systems such as fire alarm systems, telecommunications networks,
closed circuit television systems, access control systems, and
other limited energy systems. This standard provides some
references to other NEIS documents that include
commissioning and testing requirements for these systems.
Installers should follow all applicable manufacturer requirements
related to acceptance and performance testing of such systems.
Regulatory and Other Requirements
All information in this publication is intended to conform to
the National Electrical Code (NEC) (ANSI/NFPA 70).
Only qualified persons familiar with the commissioning of
