Technical Standards/ Regulations
ECA plays a vital role in setting the standards which the industry adheres to at an international, European and national level. Our experts participate in a variety of industry task forces to ensure that new and amended standards and legislation reflect innovations in technology and practice and that they are not an unnecessary burden on contractors.
Electrical safety in private rented housing
ECA, along with Electrical Safety First, played an important role in new rules seeking to protect the safety of tenants living in the private rented sector, which introduce mandatory, regular electrical safety checks.
Standards in the data communications industry
Many ECA members operate within the growing data centre industry. ECA is working with industry partners to develop a plan for introducing an enhanced standards and training regime for the sector.
