NECA/FOA 301-2004, Standard for Installing and Testing Fiber Optic Cables (ANSI) is the latest publication in the National Electrical Installation Standard (NEIS) series from NECA.

Fiber optic entrepreneur and author Jim Hayes, who is also president of the Fiber Optic Association (FOA), was principal author of this new second edition of NECA/FOA 301.

“Fiber has continued its growth as a communications medium, and more installers today are doing fiber optic work,” he said.

“This standard provides them with up-to-date information on how to properly install fiber optic networks to meet appropriate codes, standards, and performance requirements."

The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is the leading representative of a segment of the construction market comprised of over 70,000 electrical contracting firms.
