Submitter: Joseph A. Tedesco, Boston, MA
Recommendation: Revise as follows:
90.2 Scope (A) Covered. This code covers the installation and use of
Substantiation: See 110.3(B) Installation and Use.
Panel Meeting Action: Reject
Panel Statement: The submitter’s substantiation does not account for the fact
that 110.3(B) refers only to listed equipment.
See the NFPA Regulations Governing Committee Projects Section 4.3.3 that
states that proposals must include a statement of the problem and substantiation
for the proposal.
Number Eligible to Vote: 12
Ballot Results: Affirmative: 10 Negative: 2
Explanation of Negative:
HICKMAN, P.: We conclude that the submitter’s reference to 110.3(B) was
offered as an example of where “and use” is used to substantiate the
recommendation and agree with the submitter that the scope of the document
should include “and use” since the NEC does cover use as well as installation.
MCMAHILL, L.: This proposal should have been accepted. Although the
submitter did not provide clear substantiation for the proposed change, it is
apparent that parallel structure from one code section to another is the intent.
By accepting the change, parallel structure would have been attained.
This is an exact copy that I sent in to NFPA and it already has many supporters, including IBEW and IAEI. Please let the members of this forum decide. You make some good points though. I believe that it will be accepted.
