NFPA 78, Guide on Electrical Inspections, and NFPA 1078, Standard for Electrical Inspector Professional Qualifications, are seeking public inputs on their preliminary drafts. These preliminary drafts allow the public to review and submit any suggested revisions prior to the publication as First Draft Reports.

It contains specific procedures to assist in the inspection process. These procedures represent the judgment developed from the NFPA consensus process system that, if followed, can improve the probability of protecting persons and property from the hazards arising from the use of electricity.

NFPA 1078 specifies the minimum job performance requirements for serving as an electrical inspector. This standard shall be to ensure that personnel serving as electrical inspectors are qualified.
