What is the National Electrical Code?

Did you know that as of 2017, there have been 15 revisions of The National Electrical Code since 1975, the year the average American home was built?

The National Electrical Code codifies the minimum requirements for the safe electrical installations in a single, standardized source. While the NEC is not itself a law, the NEC is commonly mandated by state or local law. Where the NEC is adopted, anything less than the standards set by the NEC are illegal. The NEC revision is an open process that produces a new code every three years. The process includes:

  1. Public Input
  2. Public Commentary
  3. NFPA Technical Session
  4. Standards Council Action – Appeals and Issuance of the NEC
