Anything for electricians here in this code?

https://www.nfpa.org/MemberSections/AEBO/A_Building_Code_By_NFPA_Web_5-30-01.ppt

Chapter 52 Electrical Systems

52.1* General.

All electrical systems and equipment shall be designed and constructed in accordance with NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.
52.2 Flood Resistance.

For new construction of buildings and structures that are located wholly or partly within flood hazard areas established by 39.4.2, including substantial improvements and restoration of substantial damage, electrical systems and equipment below the design flood elevation shall meet the requirements of Section 8 of SEI/ASCE 24, Flood Resistant Design and Construction.

*A.52.1 NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, addresses the fundamental principles of protection for safety contained in the International Electrotechnical Commission Standard, Electrical Installations of Buildings, IEC 60364-1, Section 131.

Such compliance is stated in Section 90.1(D) of the 2002 edition of NFPA 70, National Electrical Code.

There are other electrical codes that also comply with the IEC 60364-1.

I wouldn't get too excited about the NFPA 5000 just yet. Out of 50 states, 1 state (Ca.) has even considered adopting it, and by the time they are done making the California Building Code out of it, you won't recognize it as the NFPA 5000. There is also one township in Texas that has adopted it. Thats it.

Most building code experts that I have talked with that have read the 5000 have nothing good to say about it, both in the vague and unenforcable manner in which it is written, and also some of the concepts that it conveys. I read breifly over some of the highlights, and quite frankly, didn't care much for it. Too many allowances for fire sprinklered buildings. Not enough emphasis on type of construction/allowable height and area.

I geuss what I am trying to say is that until it is more popular, I wouldn't even consider buying a copy.
