Are there parts of the National Electrical CodeĀ® that do not make sense to you? Would some changes in language or addition of new material help you in your job? Is your inspector confused by awkward and unfamiliar requirements?

It is time to start the tri-annual revision process leading to the creation of the 2011 edition of the National Electrical Code, which can help with the above situations. The NEC revision process begins by the general public submitting proposals to revise the Code. The proposals for the 2011 edition will be due on November 7, 2008.

As in the past, the USITT Engineering commission will serve to coordinate proposals for our industry. By reviewing everyone's proposals, we can strengthen them and present a collective position to the Code panels. You are
also free to present your own proposals directly to the NFPA.
