What is NFPA 70?
The National Electrical Code (NEC), or NFPA 70, has been updated for 2017, and contains the latest industry standards for safe electrical design, installation, and inspection to protect individuals and property from electrical hazards. Adopted by region, across the nation, NFPA 70 is part of the National Fire Code series. These code updates are published by the private electrical trade association known as the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA).
The 2017 edition of the NFPA 70 Code presents changes to the comprehensive regulations for the electrical contracting industry. These updates include: electrical wiring, overcurrent protection, grounding, and installation of equipment. Major additions reflect the continued growth in the green and renewable power technology sectors of the electrical industry. Other NEC revisions include those that protect consumers and workers from potential electrical safety hazards. The manual enables electrical professionals to work with the facts concerning the latest requirements that govern electrical contracting in public and private buildings, homes, and structures; outdoor yards and lots; utility equipment; installations that connect to the power grid; and consumer-owned power generation systems and equipment.
What does NFPA 70 address?
The NEC illustrates the correct installation of electrical conductors, equipment, and raceways; signaling and communications conductors, equipment, and raceways; and optical fiber cables and raceways in commercial, residential, and industrial buildings. Adherence to code is required to ensure inspection compliance and to uphold safety standards industry-wide.
