Suspended Ceiling Wire Protection


I know it is common to run MC/BX style cable in suspended ceilings to lights. I am wondering in a home (1 family residential), with a suspended ceiling in the basement, if I can run romex below the joists and just wire staple them below the joists or to the wall, as long as it is above the suspended ceiling?

Does the suspended ceiling meet the requirment for protection from physical damage?

Thanks
Jamie

Yes as long as there is room to remove the panel for access to any equipment in the ceiling. Just make sure to keep them 1 1/4 in from a framing member on a parallel run.
