I float in and out of here from time to time. Since I got a new computer at work, it gives me more of a chance to check in on this board. You know me and you know that I have seen, read, and have to enforce the blue book. As a contractor, I didn't know anything about the UCC. When I got my inspectors lic. in '94, I learned about the UCC. Since then I have had to subscribe and keep that darn book updated. Lately, it seems they keep changing the same sections over and over. If this was the corporate world, that book would be on line and updates would automatically get updated. However since you and I both know how the Gov. works, we will just have to keep updating it.

John, I've been reading this site "stalking" for about a year. Your question prompted me to register so that I may put in my two cents worth. My recent experience has been with 5:70, the local inspector has "forced" me to re-read various codes, i.e. NFPA 70, NFPA 72, Life Safety 101, NJ Building Code. I've been involved with fire alarm systems since 1978, got my electrical license 10 years ago, and have been UL certificated for burglar alarm systems since the '80's. It seems to me that most contractors, electrical or low voltage type, do not want to raise any questions with the ahj pertaining to "code". As long as the inspector will accept the job, then that's all that they believe they owe to the job. Rather than read the code, and I have to say it is not easy to read and "interpret", they just ask the ahj what he wants, what it takes to get him to approve the job, and that's good enough. If any of this is making sense, let me know and I can continue with my experience pertaining to 5:70, the fire code in NJ.

First off, WELCOME to ECN from a "Jersey Guy" to a "Jersey Guy".

OK, if you have ever 'read' the UCC (5:23 et al) you know that it's not real easy.

I tell the contractors/homeowners when they ask 'what do you want?'; it's not what I want, it's what's 'code'. As to getting the job approved; Code Compliance. (Period)

It's good to know that there now is a NJ Fire maven here at ECN.

Welcome and stay in touch.
