Originally posted by Bill Addiss:Could someone please supply a few details about the CEC to start things off?
Such as -
Who writes the code?
do all areas of the country use it?
are they required to?
What is the revision cycle? (how often is it modified)
Does everyone use the same revision?
Thank You in Advance
The CEC is developed and published by the Candian Standards Association (CSA)Many committees have been set up and each deals with a portion of the code.
Most provinces use the code directly by passing a provincial resolution to accept it as the code for the province.
Others base their provincial code on the CEC. Ontario for example, uses the Ontario Electrical Code (based on the CEC) and adds it's own amendments at quarterly intervals.
The CEC is published every four years. Next publication will be in 2002.
