2002 Changes to the NEC®
Article 800 Low Res - Modem Hi Res - Cable/DSL        Page 3 of 5
Communication Circuits

800.6 Mechanical Execution of Work

The text to this section was revised to read:

Communications circuits must be installed in a neat and workmanlike manner. Cables installed exposed on the surface of ceilings and sidewalls must be supported by the structural components of the building in such a manner that the cable will not be damaged by normal building use. Such cables must be secured to structural components by straps, staples, hangers or similar fittings designed and installed so as not to damage the cable. Figure 800-1

Cables installed parallel to framing members must be protected against physical damage in accordance with 300.4(D). Figure 800-2

Intent: The revised text clarifies that cables must be properly secured and protected from physical damage.
