What is a NETA Accredited Company?
NETA Accredited Companies are third-party, independent electrical testing firms involved in full-service testing, analysis, and maintenance of electrical power systems. This includes low-, medium-, and high-voltage power equipment and systems. Every NETA Accredited Company has gone through a two-fold application process.
This two-fold process accredits the company and certifies the company’s individual technicians. This approach works toward establishing a solid program that allows clients seeking testing services to feel confident about both the qualifications of the company as well as the credentials of the individual technician. Following accreditation, the qualifications of each NETA Accredited Company and its technicians are reviewed on a regular basis to assure continued compliance with the NETA bylaws and policies.
Those interested in specifying electrical testing for electrical power equipment and systems in accordance with ANSI/NETA standards by NETA Accredited Companies and NETA Certified Technicians should look to Section 3 of the ANSI/NETA ATS-2013 and ANSI/NETA MTS-2015. The ANSI/NETA ATS, Standard for Acceptance Testing Specifications for Electrical Power Equipment and Systems specifies the following qualifications for testing organizations and personnel:
3.1 Testing Organization
1. The testing organization shall be an independent, third party entity, which can function as an unbiased testing authority, professionally independent of the manufacturers, suppliers, and installers of equipment or systems being evaluated.
2. The testing organization shall be regularly engaged in the testing of electrical equipment devices, installations, and systems.
3. The testing organization shall use technicians who are regularly employed for testing services.
4. An organization having a designation of NETA Accredited Company issued by the InterNational Electrical Testing Association meets the above criteria.
5. The testing organization shall submit appropriate documentation to demonstrate that it satisfactorily complies with these requirements.
