    While product safety standards alone can be used for testing products, and understanding of the various national electrical codes can help improve the acceptance of a product in a number of countries. By studying the electrical codes, we can learn the origins and rationales behind many of the clauses in national product standards. The electrical codes will also give us insight into the national de... View full abstract»
