NEC for ceiling mount light bathroom


The NEC states that every bathroom must have:

1 20-amp dedicated cgfi circuit
1 ceiling mounted light

Do wall mounted lights above a mirror count as a 'ceiling mounted light'?

Yes, like a vanity light over a mirror or medicine chest. Or even wall sconces. Also, in a new rough...if the bathroom does not have a window but has a shower, u need a exhaust fan as well

It says nothing about a ceiling light, just that a wall switch controlled lighting outlet is required.
NEC 210.70(A)(1)

Also, the vent fan mentioned is a building code issue, not an electrical code.
