How many contractors out there have recieved a letter from a customer saying that they need to provide proof that they are in complaince with the NFPA 70E by 8/13/07 to continue to work on site?

I have recieved several calls for training the last few weeks from EC's who have recieved a letter like that and was curious if this is common nationwide.

I haven't had any notices like that in Fl. - sounds a little like a liability insurance writer (or sponsored law?) of the old fashioned CYA variety.

I think it is CYA but IBM is in the middle of a law suit from a contractor that was burned in an arc flash on thier site, maybe that accident is making other companies nervous.
