An interesting Article from NEC digest here stating new GFI requirements.

Quote
Six revisions to the UL requirements for the GFCI have been drafted and will become effective January 2003. They include:

~A more stringent voltage surge test to ensure the GFCI can handle a higher surge current.
~A new corrosion test to demonstrate greater immunity to moist conditions.
~An operating test to verify that proper operation of the GFCI can not be prevented by manipulation of the GFCI controls.
~A reverse line-load miswire test that requires the GFCI to trip when miswired.
~An abnormal overvoltage test that requires the GFCI not become a fire or shock hazard during extreme overvoltage conditions.
~Increased requirement for GFCI to operate properly after exposure to conducted radio frequencies.
