lighting disco code


What is the code regarding light fixtures having a disconnecting means in the fixture for servicing? I was told it was in the 2008 code only.

First in the 2005 code. It was given an effective date of January 1st, 2008 - leading to a certain amount of confusion about which code cycle it was in.
