Receptacle, Cord Connectors, and Attachment Plugs

406.8 Receptacles in Damp or Wet Locations

Parts of this section were revised to read:

(B) Wet Locations.
(1) 15 and 20A Outdoor Receptacles. 15 and 20A, 125 and 250V receptacles installed outdoors in a wet location must have an enclosure that is weatherproof when the attachment plug is inserted (raintight while-in-use cover). Figure 406-2

Intent: The revised text to (B)(1) was intended to ensure that all 15 and 20A, 125 and 250V receptacles installed outdoors in a wet location be within an enclosure and cover that is weatherproof at all times, even when an attachment plug is inserted.
