I am searching for information as to what edition of the NEC is used in your area starting with the 1999 edition back?

Are there any areas still using the 1996, 1993, 1990, or 1987 editions?

Don't laugh, I heard of one city a while ago who was still using the 1968 NEC!

We use the 2000 Chicago, which is about the same as the 1999 NEC.
When I started inspecting here in Burbank IL back in 1998, we were still useing the 1969 Chicago code. It's nice to be back to the future, sort of.

Joe: mainly "96" but slowly moving to "99".
some of the combo inspectors here carried both 93 and 96 when I got here.A punch list was made for them by somebody? with ref. to both editions.I,ve changed that.

Current CEC (California Electrical Code) is built on the '99 NEC, so I would have to answer " '99 NEC "

We are using the 1999 NEC but ANY DAY NOW we should be changing to the 2002. I have been hearing ANY DAY NOW since last July! The big fight here in this state ( I think) is the AFCI debate. However I won't get started on that one. It is being discussed ever where on every board. [Linked Image]


P.S. Still trying to find someone to cover for me here.

Like Scott said we are using the 2001 CEC (‘99Nec) here in California. However, the job I am just starting was approved by the city before the adoption of the current code so we are still stuck on the ’98 CEC (’96 CEC) for a while longer.

Hello All,

Virginia, being the Commonwealth that it is, has independent cities. Meaning that the cities are completly separate from the counties. So the locality determines the code you are working from. In my city, we are on the 1996 NEC and it's rumored that we will jump right to the 2002 NEC this fall. Of course, that's what they said last year.

If I'm not mistaken, the state just changed from the 1996 NEC to the 1999 NEC as far as testing for your license.
