    Revise Section 90.2(A) as follows:

    Revise the 2005 NEC Section:

    "90.2 Scope.

    (A) Covered. This Code covers the installation of electrical conductors, equipment, and raceways; signaling and communications conductors, equipment, and raceways; and optical fiber cables and raceways for the following:"

    So that it will read as follows in the 2008 NEC:

    "90.2 Scope.

    (A) Covered. This Code covers the installation and use of electrical conductors, equipment, and raceways; signaling and communications conductors, equipment, and raceways; and optical fiber cables and raceways for the following:"

    Reason:

    Everything that is installed is also used by someone, and there are entire articles covering installation and use of many electrical products.

    Joe,
    How could that be enforced?

      I am not sure, but it is true and the NFPA CMP 1 members should think about this issue very carefully.

      I will submit this proposal to the NFPA.

        Joe,
        I think that any attempt to enforce a rule like that would be a serious affront to the 4th Amendment.

          Don: How is this suggestion any different from 110.3(B)?

          (B) Installation and Use. Listed or labeled equipment shall be installed and used in accordance with any instructions included in the listing or labeling.

              Re: Revise Section 90.2(A) as follows:

              Such an insane rule would seem to require the end user to get a permit to plug an extra TV in.

              I think such a rule would not only be unenforcable but widely laughed at. It would tend to make the code less enforcable.

              plus there is absolutely no reason for it.

                Then what about AFCI's for AC Units 440.65, and other rules calling for specific safety items for hair dryers and other personal grooming appliances -- it is in the code! :confused:

                    I think that the Code should add the words I mentioned in the first post.

                      Joe,
                      I don't think those rules belong in the code either. They are not within the scope of the code. Those things should be left to the product standards.

                        Don:

                        I agree, that's probably a better approach, as you suggest, however, that will never happen because the structure of the NEC Committee and NFPA's long standing affiliations with the major groups are set in stone.

                        I would like to hear what you would propose, for example, would you want to delete certain sections and articles from the code, Annex A, etc.?

                            Joe,
                            To start with, I think that the code, for the most part, should stop at the point where the equipment is connected to the building wiring system(the outlet). That would mean anything to do with plug and cord connected equipment should be removed.
                            I don't see a problem with the Annex, as that is informational only, not code rules.

                              Don, that is exactly why we revised 240.5. CMP-10 does not feel like in general that the Code should cover wiring that is not building wiring. This is a product standards issue.
