The organizations that develop and publish the primary standards covering the specification and installation of residential system wiring are: ANSI, EIA, IEEE, ISO, NFPA, TIA, UL, and OSHA.
ANSI is an agency of the United States federal government that is charged with the responsibility of developing and approving standards that cover a variety of technology, including computers and data communications, and weights and measurements. ANSI works with other agencies to develop and publish standards. Examples of jointly issued standards are the ANSI/TIA/EIA 568, 569, and 570 wire and cabling standards.
EIA is an alliance of trade and industry associations that work together to sponsor and promote data communication standards. Most of the EIA standards that apply to residential wiring are issued jointly with ANSI and TIA, including the ANSI/EIA/TIA 568 and 570 standards.
The IEEE is a worldwide, technical, professional association of
The ISO is an international, non-treaty organization of voluntary
The NFPA is an international association focused on the development and publishing of fire safety codes, standards, and research to minimize the possibilities and impact of fire and other safety risks. The NFPA publishes the National Electrical Code (NEC), which includes coverage for the installation of electrical conductors, including the wiring used in structured residential wiring systems.
TIA is a trade organization of telecommunication product and service providers that develops and publishes a variety of wire and media specifications and testing standards for residential applications. The TIA/EIA 568 and 570 standards
UL is an independent,
The primary home technology standards are ANSI/EIA/TIA wiring standards, IEEE Ethernet wire standards, the NEC, the OSHA job safety practices, and the International Building Code (IBC).
The ANSI/EIA/TIA 568 standard provides specification for generic telecommunication cabling that prescribe the performance testing criteria for standard system configurations and their
The 568 standard defines two separate cable termination standards for UPT cabling: 568a and 568b. The 568 standards also specify IDC (Insulation Displacement Connector) connectors at the distribution or telecommunications center and the use of the RJ-45 connector.
The EIA/TIA 570 standard defines the basic requirements for residential structured wiring and is the nationally accepted standard covering the design and installation of low voltage wiring in residential dwellings.
The IEEE 802 standards
Each country has a governmental agency that publishes job safety and health codes and regulations. In the United States, it’s the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA); in Canada, it’s the Human Resources Development Canada (HRDC); in England, it’s the Health and Safety Executive (HSE); and in Japan, it’s the Japan Occupational Safety and Health Office (JOSHO). OSHA publishes the “Selected Construction Regulations (SCOR) for the Home Building Industry (29 CFR 1926).”

D. The National Education Association doesn’t publish home wiring system standards.
B. The other standards listed are for LAN connectivity, Token Ring networks, and personal area networks, respectively.
The National Fire Protection Association publishes the NEC approximately every 3-4
C. Actually there are two standards, the 568a and the 568b.
D. Cat 2 isn’t used for networking. Cat 3 and Cat 4 are recommended for 10BaseT and Token Ring networks.
C. The difference between the 568a and 568b is the placement of only one pair.
C. The 568 standards deal with UTP cable and its termination, and the 802 standards are published by IEEE.
B. Baseband refers to the fact that the cable media is able to carry only a single signal.
C. The other 802 standards deal with Ethernet media access, metropolitan area networking (MAN), and personal area networking (PAN), respectively.
A. This agency is charged with issuing worker and workplace safety standards and practices.
