Requires all electrical materials, devices, appliances, and equipment to meet nationally recognized standards, as certified by a qualified testing laboratory. States that placing a sticker or other marking on electrical materials, devices, appliances, and equipment showing compliance with such a standard is sufficient to meet the statute's requirements and prohibits the Insurance Commissioner from requiring any other state certification process. Requires the Engineering Division of the Department of Insurance to keep filed copies of all approved national standards, where practical. Effective when the act becomes law.

Appropriates $3,500 from the General Fund to the Division of Purchase and Contract to provide notification to vendors and State agencies. Effective July 1, 2017.
