I need a little help reguarding the 6 ft rule on gfi protection. I am purchasing a house built in 1990 and none of the outlets in the house are gfi protected. I noticed this on a walk through inspection and it was written up on a home inspection report as well. The current owners refuse to install the necessary gfi protection stating that it was the local building departments fault because the home passed inspection at the time it was built.

I am trying to verify when this rule was adopted into the code. The earliest code book I have is the 1996. Does anyone have a copy of the 1987 book?

Thanks
