First, the U.S. National Electrical Code may or may not be appropriate!!!

It's actually just a standards manual published by the (U.S.) National Fire Protection Association. LOCAL and/or State law may require adherence to either the NEC or some other electrical code.

For example, in Chicago, the NEC is superceded by the Chicago Electrical code. see
and navigate to / your Government / City Departments / Construction and Permits / References and Ordinances / Electrical code

Here is the Wikipedia entry: »en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_E ··· %28US%29
and a linky to the 2008 electrical code:
»www.nfpa.org/freecodes/free_acce ··· %5Ftest=
Additionally, here is the 2007 NFPA Fire Code
»www.nfpa.org/freecodes/free_acce ··· ?id=7207

Feedback received on this FAQ entry:
  • http://www.nfpa.org/freecodes/free_access_agreement.asp?id=7008SB&cookie%5Ftest= is a dead link now. I suggest listing bulk.resource.org instead. The theory of their archive there is that since the NEC has been incorporated by reference into, among other places, states' law, it is legal to republish the NFPA's copyrighted works.
