This sure looks like 'advertising' to me.

So far I have been able to get the PDFs from NFPA on their web site but 2020 doesn't seem to be up yet. You can get the interactive one online. If you are willing to live with the Draft from the ROPs they go back at least to the 50s. I found them when I was researching that down sized ground in RX. I downloaded 56, 68 and 71 in that quest. I also have the real ones since 96 in various formats mostly PDF.

I really miss the availability of the NEC & NEC Handbook on CD/DVD.

Life was good then.

Hi John,
Surely these days it would come on something like a USB stick for them net-books and other "devices" that don't have a CD/DVD drive?
And I mean, I think I would sooner have a little case of USB sticks, than a case of CD's or DVD's, just because of vehicle motion scratching the CD's.

Mike:

I would agree with you 100%, and take it on a USB stick, or copy it to a stick myself.

I still have a bunch of CDs & DVDs, and when I may need the data, I use my wife's Apple DVD/CD accessory drive. I's a pain, but you have to do what you have to do sometimes.

NFPA just was not happy that they were losing control of their product.
