International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI) has, since 1928, been a core leader in the electrical industry and has actively promoted safe products and safe installations. Active members and partners in the association include many diverse groups, including electrical inspectors, testing agencies, standards organizations, manufacturers, distributors, installers and contractors. The association has a long and recognized history in comprehensive training in and promotion of safe products, electrical installations and inspections in order to ensure compliance with electrical codes and standards.
