In my opinion there will be as many different answers as there are areas that have adopted the NEC.
Enforcement is not really covered by the NEC.
In my area we use an amended NEC.
90.4 Enforcement is rewritten along with 90.6 Interpretations and Appeals.
We also have an added 90.10, References to Commonwealth of Massachusetts Codes, Regulations, and Laws.
In the previous thread you and I where 'talking' in, I said carpenters where not bound to the NEC.
To be clear what I mean is an electrical inspector here has no power to make a carpenter do or fix anything they may have messed up.
Certainly if the carpenter builds shelving in front of my electrical panel the inspector will rightfully fail the job, but I get the violation, not the carpenter.
At that point I bring the problem to the GC and they figure out who has to pay to correct the mistake.
This is the same for me if I where to create a building code violation by cutting through a joist to run a raceway.
The building inspector would fail the rough building inspection and the carpentor would get the failure not me. Of course I will be paying for the carpenters time to fix the issue.
It will be interesting to see how other areas handle this.
