Tentative Interim Amendment
NFPA 70
National Electrical Code®
2002 Edition

Reference: 527.4(B) and 527.4(C) TIA 02-1 (NFPA 70)

Pursuant to Section 5 of the NFPA Regulations Governing Committee Projects, the National Fire Protection Association has issued the following Tentative Interim Amendment to NFPA 70, National Electrical Code®, 2002 edition. The TIA was processed by the National Electrical Code® Committee, and was issued by the Standards Council on October 3, 2002, with an effective date of October 23, 2002.

A Tentative Interim Amendment is tentative because it has not been processed through the entire standards-making procedures. It is interim because it is effective only between editions of the standard. A TIA automatically becomes a proposal of the proponent for the next edition of the standard; as such, it then is subject to all of the procedures of the standards-making process.

1. Revise section 527.4(B) to read as follows:

(B) Feeders. Feeders shall be protected as provided in Article 240. They shall originate in an approved distribution center. Conductors shall be permitted within cable assemblies or within multiconductor cords or cables of a type identified in Table 400.4 for hard usage or extra-hard usage. For the purpose of this section, Type NM and Type NMC cables shall be permitted to be used in any dwelling, building, or structure without any height limitation or limitation by building construction type as described in 334.10(3).

2. Revise section 527.4(C) to read as follows:

(C) Branch Circuits. All branch circuits shall originate in an approved power outlet or panelboard. Conductors shall be permitted within cable assemblies or within multiconductor cord or cable of a type identified in Table 400.4 for hard usage or extra-hard usage. All conductors shall be protected as provided in Article 240. For the purposes of this section, Type NM and Type NMC cables shall be permitted to be used in any dwelling, building, or structure without any height limitation or limitation by building construction type as described in 334.10 (3).

I'm not clear about the procedural implications here.

Is the only change the addition of the words

or limitation by building construction type as described in 334.10(3).
???

Are the Exceptions to 527.4(B) & (C) deleted or are they unchanged?

Thanks Gentlemen,

I infer that the exceptions are unchanged.
