The Leader in Harmonizing NEC and IEC Standards

R. STAHL's commitment to the Americas commenced in 1979 when R. STAHL introduced intrinsic safety technology to the North American market. It rose to greater prominence in the mid-1990s, when R. STAHL played a leading advocacy role in the harmonization of the U.S. National Electrical Code (NEC) and the International Electrical Code (IEC). Changes made at that time yielded increased global standardization, and produced heightened efficiencies and maintenance benefits for international markets.
