List of Materials Acceptable for Use on Systems of USDA Rural Development Electrification Borrowers

(Informational Publication 202-1)

With more than 75 years of experience, the USDA Rural Development Electric Programs have found that electric utility construction, operation, and maintenance are best when high-quality, long-lasting materials are used. Because the quality of materials is so important to program objectives, the Electric Programs continue to require that borrowers observe Electric Programs standards and use Technical Standards Committee (Electric) or TSC accepted products on their systems whether they use RUS loan funds, other sources of financing assistance, or their own general funds. For information on the Technical Standards Committees or the procedure for submitting an application for acceptance of a material product, see the Technical Standards Committees page.

The List of Materials is published each July, with three quarterly supplements (October, January, and April).
