Rough in inspection

Hello all, I know local codes varies but whats the norm on rough in inspections?

All ground wires in outlets need to have the ground wires connected?

does the main breaker panel circuits need to be connected, or just the ground wires?

Call your inspectors and see what they'll be expecting. In our area they rough -in didn't include breakers, just boxes and wires. Final however did require breakers and live circuits.

Rough in inspection

same here, rough in looks at the placment of boxes and types of wires in said boxes, as well as meeting requirements for ccts (eps kitchen/bathroom).

no wires should be connected to anything and no devices installed.

Rough in inspection

Matrix...In ATL we make up all the grounds in the entire house, as well as in the panel. While I'm in the panel, I go ahead and make up the neutrals. We also install a GFCI outlet in the washing machine box( as this is a homerun all by itself.) I then install a 20A breaker in the panel so when GA power comes and gives me a meter I have temp power for the other trades in the house. None of this may apply where you live. Call your inspector.
