NERC’s New Regulation (NESISR 2014)
08 Sep, 2014


The Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC) is empowered by the Electric Power Sector Reform (EPSR) Act 2005 to make Regulations and in exercise of this power has made the Nigerian Electricity Supply and Installation Standards (NESIS) Regulation 2014.

At the public hearing of the draft of the Regulation held recently, Chairman of the NERC stated that NESIS Regulation 2014 was needed to review, replace and repeal CAP 106 Regulations (of the Electricity Act 1990) due to advancement in technology and the restructured power sector in Nigeria. The proposed NESIS Regulation is formulated in such a way as to reasonably cover all aspects of engineering practices as it concerns generation, transmission, distribution and utilization of electric power in Nigeria.
