    new change

    ART-100 definitions.

    my suggestions for a proposal is:

    change
    Branch Circuit, Individual. A branch circuit that supplies
    only one utilization equipment.
    to
    Branch Circuit, Individual. A branch circuit that supplies
    only one utilization equipment using a single Outlet.
    outlet in italics because that word is a art-100 definition.

    why you ask, because the change rectifies a few issues around the intended use of a indi-bc, and, it helps align with "dedicated" from IBC and other published docs, etc.

    Well....Here is what you got for 2017 Edition. If you are suggesting any changes beyond that then I am sure the CMP 2 will be eagerly awaiting your public input and detailed substantiation for the 2020 Cycle.

    Branch Circuit. The circuit conductors between the final over-current device protecting the circuit and the outlet(s).

    The OP was talking about individual branch circuits.

    Yep.

    I did check out of curiousity, no change in definition for individual branch circuit for 2017.
