2014 Counterfeit Electrical Products Survey

Department:  ESFI  
Type:  Brochures & Publications  

In an effort to develop a baseline understanding of the observations, attitudes, and perceptions of those who manufacture, distribute, install, and inspect electrical products, ESFI recently surveyed members of several organizations that are active in the electrical industry about counterfeit electrical products.  The survey was conducted using an online questionnaire, and each organization distributed the invitations and subsequent follow-ups to its members.  


ESFI thanks the following organizations for their participation in the survey: International Association of Electrical Inspectors (IAEI), Independent Electrical Contractors Association (IEC), National Association of Electrical Distributors (NAED), National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA), and National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).
