NULCA - Locating Professionals
Formerly known as the National Utility Locating Contractors Association, we are now “Nulca – representing utility locating professionals”. Nulca was formed in 1994 by several contract locating companies to advance locating throughout North America. In 1996, Nulca published its first Competency Standard for training utility locators. This guideline has since become the industry standard and is now in its fifth revision. It serves as the basis for the Nulca Accreditation/Certification program, rolled out in March 2016 through a partnership with NSF, the industry leader in safety-based risk management solutions and verification.
Nulca also works closely with numerous industry associations and organizations to prevent utility damages as well as to promote safety and enhanced communication. Nulca will continue to work to promote professional locating from the individual technician to the largest company. Our members include contract locators, in-house locators, pipeline companies, private locators, SUE contractors, vacuum excavators, regulators, one call systems, manufacturers and suppliers and many others.
