I haven't seen the 2005 Mass Elec Code available yet. So I called MECA today and they said it is being printed now and won't be out for a couple of weeks.

So I wonder when I am suppose to do my installations according to the 2005 code if it isn't available yet?

When do the inspectors in the State start enforcing the new code?

Joe...do you have a copy of the approved ammendments to the 2005 NEC by the State of Massachusetts?

I need to have a copy of the ammendments if I am to comply with the changes as I start new jobs in the new year.

Yes, I have a copy. The Statehouse Bookstore should have them available too. You may be able to order a copy on line.

You'd think there would be some effort (there is currently none at all) to make this public and readily available. Not in this screwed up state.
