GFI outlet requirement

Does anyone know if there is code requirement for a GFI outlet in the vicinity of outdoor air condenser (for AC) units? I am in Massachusetts. And if so what is the minimal distance? Thanks.

Is the outlet outdoors? If you re-read your post, I am sure that you can figure out the answer to your question ninghai. Distance should be really at the same spot that the disco for the outside unit, not clear across the yard to the front outlet, or garage 200' away.
