    article 210.4 2008 nec

    i understand this article when installing multi wire branch circuits.
    question what if let say you install 6 circuits with 6 neutral in the same conduit entering a panel .does each circuit and neutral have to be identify as they enter a panel cant find where it says that.

    I do not know of a code section requiring this identification of individual grounded conductors of circuits.

    Do not find anything in 2011 either.

    No it's not required. But it might make it easier on the next guy if they were

    identified with sticky number wraps, especially if the next guy is YOU.

    It really is not different than 6 mc cables entering the panel. Now I believe each neutral should be identified with the appropriate ungrounded conductor.

    following 210.4(D) each neutral of the circuit will be identified by the grouping.

    That does not apply to the two-wire circuits mentioned in the OP.

    Fooled by the title of the thread saying 210.4
