FMC (Flexible Metal Conduit for our amatures). The conductors have to be installed in the raceway. They do not come pre-installed.

I don't think your giving inspectors enough credit for the application we are looking at in this thread. This is simply a protective sleeve. One could try to argue that sch. 40 is not listed for this particular application as it doesn't meet physical protection specifications by the NEC. I would have used EMT but based on what I see I'd expect a pass on the install of sch.40. The flex probably needs a fastening clamp but the distance is pretty short between the panel and MTS.

Most of the issues of NM in conduit are talking about complete conduit runs and I really don't think you would find very many inspectors that would not allow it in a protective sleeve. It would all depend on the requirement for physical protection as to what conduit/raceway would be required.

Thanks all for the input.

So it sounds like I should put a clamp to secure the flexible conduit for good measure and hope the inspector pass it...
