    I doubt that is true in your area and it certainly is not the case in most places.

    That would be the same as a judge making up laws on the spot.

      Are they just not enforcing it, or is there an amendment stating that 690.12 shall be deleted/not adopted?

        You are correct. Got to thinking about it after I posted. Figured I'd wait until you replied to 'fess up.

          The city passed an ordinance that declares what is the electric code for the city. It references the 2014 NEC but adds stuff that is not in the NEC. They don't make stuff up on the spot but they enforce their code, which is mostly the NEC but has some differences. The NEC is not law but their ordinance is.

            Yes, same in many places

            The AHJ makes written changes that everyone know about, they cant simply decide on the spot.

              That's what I meant; sorry if I wasn't clear.
