I seem to remember someone telling me that there is a similar procedure for New York City. Can't remember all the details; perhaps Mr Bill has some.

Careful John, you might be making your job obsolete. wink

Actually that is the way the State of Florida worked (on internal state projects) until 1995 when they passed the inspector licensing law and forgot to exempt themselves.
It is how I got my job. I was one of the early licensed electrical inspectors in the state.
In 2002 they tossed it back to the local AHJ.

Greg, your statement may be great rhetoric ... but I'm just not seeing it justified in reality.

That is, I have not noticed any greater quantity or creativity in the 'hack' work whether the area I have been in was greatly regulated or completely unregulated.

Indeed, the simple existance of building regulation seems to inspire folks to go to great lengths to break the rules.

Reno:

Inspiration of some to violate rules, by the fact that there are rules has probably existed since the dawn of man.

Yes, 'hack' quality work exists here. To which I have to say that it's shameful that a licensed EC, who took and passed the test, along with documenting trade experience, perform in that manner. This is another rant, for another time.
