The proposed wording says that any conductor "identified as permitted" in this section shall only be used as an EGC. The use of a bare wire is permitted to identify an EGC, this will mean that bare conductors are no longer permitted to be used as grounding electrode conductors. Don

Joe, You are correct that the new wording would prohibit the use of green for the grounding electrode conductor. My comment will be to "accept in principle" with the following words added at the end of the proposed wording, "or grounding electrode conductor". Don

Why not identify the EGC with green and yellow stripes only and the GEC with green (or bare) only. Then the US would follow the international standard on the EGC identification (I don't think there is a standard for the GEC)
