Is anyone aware of a change int he Code requiremnt to remove abandoned comm wiring that includes a time frame? We are moving our call center and this requires tearing down all the modular furniture. This will leave the drop cables termionated in the closets but loose on the floor.
During our weekly project update meeting the Project manager stated that he doesn't have to worry about removal as he has six months to declare the cable "abandoned". Upon my querring him fuurther he stated its in the code.
My transmission engineer and I have reviewed the 2005, 2008 (which we believ to be the code Detroit is using) and the 2011 code but cannot find any referecne to a six month or other time frame in which to declare the wiring as abandoned and need to remove it.
Are we missing something?? or is this project manager confused??
