NEC History of GFCI Protection Requirements (8/29/03)

Menu   NEC Products  

A common question I receive is "when did the NEC start requiring GFCI protection for xxxx?"

So when Jerry Peck (one of our newsletter members) sent me a wonderful one page summary of the NEC requirements for GFCI's, I had to let you know. Go here to download the document: [ PDF 11KB ]

This excellent on page document looks like it contains most if not all of the GFCI protection requirements and what Code cycle they went into effect. If you find an error or omission, please let me know so we can get this "right."

Enjoy, Mike
