New Jersey is scheduled to adopt the 2011 NEC on 5/7/12 with modifications. The modications can be found in the UCC (see earlier post regarding the UCC). There will be a six month grace period where the applicant can apply for the permit under the 2008 NEC. The grace period expires 11/7/12 at which time all new permit applications will be issued under the 2011 NEC. Any work performed on existing structures will still fall under the ReHab SubCode and the 2008 NEC.

Still more to come!!

DIY Electrical work in New Jersey


I'm not in NJ and don't intend on being in NJ, but I am curious about the homeowner doing his own work thing. What happens if the homeowner is doing his own work and his brother helps pull wire? Is that not allowed? Or would the homeowner have to do the entire job without assistance from anyone not listed on the property deed?

Well, post #4 states "on his(or her, thanks Jim) own dwelling unit. So technically the answer is no, but I don't have a problem with family helping out. That is what family does. I do have a problem with a 77 yr old lady taking out a permit for a 200A service and stating she is doing the work herself. Gimme a break.

There are no limits on HO's here in NJ either. They are held to the same standard as professionals. Just because they do the work themselves doesn't mean they don't have to follow the law. I know some of this post sounds overbearing, but all licensed inspectors (including building, plumbing, electrical and fire) are mandated by law to follow the law.
My intent here is to provide as much information as possible to help out the HO even though some of our amature posters don't appreciate it. ( Not that I really care)

DIY Electrical work in New Jersey


Does one need a permit in NJ to work on cord-and-plug-connected apparatus?

To spit on the sidewalk?
