    NEC proposals

    For the last 6 cycles I tried to submit 4 proposals, but I always missed the deadline, got lazy or forgot, so now that I am getting older I think it is time to do for the 2020, oh I love the number 2020.

    I have been using those issues that I will propose from 1999 with excellent proved results.

    What will be the easiest way to do that? To whom? Of course I want the credit, but if I send to the wrong person/organization I will be cheated. As you know from previous posts English is my second language.

    Suggestions? Thanks!

    Go here and sign up for a free NFPA membership.

    https://www.nfpa.org/login

    Then go here and click on "The next edition of this standard is now open for Public Input"

    http://www.nfpa.org/codes-and-standa...e=code&code=70

    They are already accepting public inputs/proposals for the 2020 NEC.

    Tom was saying that if you wish members to comment on a proposal of yours you can post it in this thread/forum.

    The deadline is, I believe, the first week in November 2017

    Post your code proposals here for comments by forum members. Once you see the comments, then edit and submit to the NFPA website.

    Not sure what you mean by “I want the credit", there is no compensation for having a code change accepted and your name does not go in the NEC. Unless someone digs through the ROP and ROC they will not know who proposed the change, and almost no one really cares.

    I suppose someone could carry around a copy of the accepted ROP and use it with their resume as "bragging rights".
