I had a discussion with someone about outbuildings.
We have always placed a disconnect in any seperate building/structure. It makes sense and we have always done it so we thought that the code book would say that.
Well we looked for a reference saying that you have to have a disconnect and did not find one. The only thing that we found was in section 14 which talked about overcurrent protection for the circuits.
Now I am not talking about factory built relocatable or non relocatable structures here. For those I know you need one as per the code.
I was wondering if anyone here knows if it is required to have a means of disconnection at all buildings/structures. No meter, just fed off another building underground. If it is required could you please give a reference.

Thanks
