User Electronic and Electrical Equipment Inspection Criteria

In order to be in compliance with NEC, OSHA, and DOE regulations all electronic and electrical equipment at the APS must be inspected. This includes all electronic and electrical equipment brought to the APS by users for use in their experiments.  This equipment includes, but is not limited to, equipment that is not tested by a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratory (NRTL) and any type of non-commercial, home-built electronic and electrical equipment. The APS designated electrical equipment inspectors (DEEI) are available for user equipment inspections. Please see the links below for additional information.
