ANSI/NECA/BICSI 607-2011, Standard for Telecommunications Bonding and Grounding Planning and Installation Methods for Commercial Buildings

Bonding and Grounding 2

An effective telecommunications bonding and grounding system can prevent injury and equipment damage.

With the complexity of today’s infrastructure with little margin for outages, any system, including the grounding and bonding network, can be the weakest link.

NECA/BICSI 607 specifies aspects of planning and installation of telecommunications bonding and grounding systems. While this standard aligns with related standards, such as the NEC® and ANSI/J-STD-607, Commercial Building Grounding (Earthing) and Bonding Requirements for Telecommunications, additional requirements and information for components and connectors of these systems are also included. As the best design can be undone by poor implementation, a majority of NECA/BICSI 607 details installation methods and practices to minimize potential grounding system failure.
