In this area we'll discuss Building and other Codes that often have an impact on Electrical work but are not covered in the NEC.

Please welcome Ryan and Roger as Moderators at ECN! I'd like to thank them for agreeing to share their expertise and I think we're all going to learn something here!

If you have any comments, suggestions etc. let 'em rip!

Sound like a great idea. Will you be moving related threads from the other forums here?

sparked,

If you know of any threads that you think would fit better here or a topic you'd like to see 'revived' let someone know about them. It might be interesting to re-open some older discussions, or it might be good to start fresh, the Moderators will decide.

Bill, thank you for opening up this new area.

I think we can expand in to avenues that are not going to be ignored.

We all have been required to make adjustments to an installation due to a code or standard outside of the NEC or local Electrical codes.

The days of looking to one code are passing if not already behind us. Look at NFPA 20,72,99,101,110, everything below, in between, and above these numbers.

I hope everyone will have patience while I get my feet wet [Linked Image]

Thanks

Roger

Bill and Bob: Thanks for the compliments, your words are far too kind.

I agree with you guys in that there is much to be learned from "other codes", besides the NEC.

Please feel free to fire-away with your questions. Please bare in mind that, like the NEC, every state will have different amendments to the code. Also, with the union of BOCA, SBCCI and ICBO, most states have adopted the international code council (ICC) set of codes. Most of the code questions and answers will be based on these codes (I assume). If you are in California, please include that in your question.

Thanks again, Ryan_J

I think this makes a good addition to the forum.

There are so many areas where there is a cross-over between various trades and their different rules and/or guidelines.

very interesting, i have read much that would have been addressed by 101, 780, etc

it would be great if those familiar with the inticacies of these codes would chime in
