Is industrial manufacturing exempt from the N.E.C.

Why do you ask this question?

Texas is in the USA, and it is my understanding that Texas uses the NEC.

I would say that it does, but I cannot be sure of what edition you would be under.

Is the facility a Chapter 5 special occupancy, or a other location where products are manufactured.

You do use UL or other labeled equipment.

This will be an interesting subject, and I am sure the rest of the members will enjoy hearing your story.

PS: Someone said that the NEC is available for Free in Texas, is that true?

I wish to assure Joe that, while some Texans support the independant Republic philosophy and many others feel the Red River is a more problematic source of infiltration than the Rio Grande; Texas does abide by the NEC and , in fact, has just established a state wide electrical licensing law.

Thanks Wolfdog, I was aware of the new requirements for licensed electricians. I lived in Dallas for about two years when I worked in Richardson.

Is it true that Texas may be able to get the NEC for free over the Internet?

I have not heard of that nor have I read anything about it on the above listed web site.

I have already received my Master license from the state and so far, no one is giving anything away.
