What does the Building Code(s) have to say about this?

This house was probably 30+ years old and this wall was opened during a Kitchen renovation. I was told all of the homes in the development were like this.

If an Inspector was here now to inspect some new rough-in items would he, or could he say anything about the trap being over the panel, or that the panel (other side of wall) is now in a Bathroom?

This is an excellent example.
I will give you my [Linked Image] interpretation, This is not too uncommon and in this installation I think it is permitted. Water can leak down from most anywhere above a panel and if we had to worry about bathrooms/kitchens or any sinks, it would limit us in a lot of dwellings.

does a Plumbing trap have to be accessible?

In this case it will be sealed up in the wall again when the room is finished.

Those particular types of fittings are called "slip-joint", and yes they must be accessible. Not all traps need to be accessible, just slip-joints.

Back to the electrical part of the installation. Now that the wall is open, wouldn't most inspectors require proper supporting of the NM?
