Illustrated Changes to the NEC, 2002 Edition - Part 1

Article 100

General

Qualified Person

The definition of “Qualified Person” was revised to read:

Qualified Person. A person who has the skill and knowledge related to the construction and operation of the electrical equipment and its installation. This person must have received safety training on the hazards involved with electrical systems. Figure 100–4
Intent: This term “Qualified Person(s)” was used in about 65 Code sections throughout the 1999 NEC and the revision was intended to clarify that a qualified person must have received safety training on the hazards involved with electrical systems. No longer is a person considered qualified simply by being familiar with the construction and operation of the equipment and the hazards involved. See 110.16 Flash Protection, as an example where a qualified person is required. This makes the definition in line with OSHA and NFPA 70E requirements.
