Universal Electrical Code


Is the Universal Electrical Code available online or in a PDF somewhere?

And that is far from universal after some cities get the teeth into it.

It has nothing to do with how much work you do. It has everything to do with what code cycle your area is under.

As odd as it may sound my area is still on 1999.

Hope they don't jump from 99 to 08. That would be a culture shock

I've read there is some jurisdiction in Texas that is still on the 1984 Code. Not sure how true that is, just hearsay.

I've actually heard the same thing, that there is a county in Texas that is still on one of the 1980ish code cycles.

I know that our inspectors just don't feel there has been anything that really changes the real meat of the 1999 code book. They and the builders/contractors have no use for the afci deal at all, and the child proof receptacles and the increase in gfci coverage etc... I think if they ever jump to 2008 the local code will be so full of amendments nobody will be sure of what is compliant.... as it is now we only have 2 amendments.

Heck, from the way I understand it New York City just completed their first building code update in nearly a century. I'll have to try to find that article at work next week...Its in one of my magazines...Perhaps ICC's publication.
