The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA)[1] is the association of electrical equipment and medical imaging manufacturers in the United States. It was founded in 1926 and maintains its headquarters in Rosslyn, Virginia, just outside Washington, D.C.[2] Its approximately 450 member companies[3] manufacture products used in the generation, transmission, distribution, control, and end use of electricity. These products are used in utility, industrial, commercial, institutional, and residential applications. The association’s Medical Imaging & Technology Alliance (MITA) division represents manufacturers of cutting-edge medical diagnostic imaging equipment including MRI, CT, x-ray, and ultrasound products. Global sales of NEMA-scoped products exceed $140 billion. NEMA also has offices in Beijing and Mexico City.

In addition to lobbying activities, NEMA publishes more than 600 standards,[4] application guides, white papers, and technical papers.
