Does anyone use this dwelling code?
Nec 210-12 says AFCI's shall be used after 1/1/02, only several weeks away. I didn't see an AFCI reference in the I1&2FDC.

Michigan adopted a slightly modiied version of the Int'l residential code that went into effect July 31, 2001.

Here in Michigan, the state deleted the references to AFCI's in the national code even beforewe went to the residential code.
