NJ Question

NJ Question - 12/22/07 01:06 PM

From what I recall, NJ electrical contractors are allowed to design 1 & 2 family dwellings and "small commercial" buildings.

Do they have a definition of "small"?

Thanks,

John

Redsy:
"Small' does not have a def within the UCC (5:23 et al) but...

The 'book' 5:23-2.15 (Construction Permits-Applications)
5:23-2-15 (f)(1) (iii) and ((vii) (1)

All that says that a Lic EC (or Plumber) can prepare plans for a Class III structure; and all other Comm require a seal by PE/EE or Architect

I cannot tell you the exact def of Class III without the right book.

Some areas require a signed/sealed plan for ALL comm; others base that requirement on the proposed scope of the intended work.

The 'best' I can tell you is I'll get the exact Class III definitions on Wed 12/26/2008

PS: Please remember the UCC is a 'Law' book, basically the Administrative Laws/Rules and adopted trade specific codes with amendments to suite the State.

Let me know if you want the Class III definition.

Merry Christmas

Thanks, John. That is sufficient. I'll let you know if I need any more help.
