Actually the question pertains to exam rooms either in a hospital or in a medical building.

Do all receptacles within 6 feet of the sink need to be GFI or is there an out for this type of room?


Thanks,

Mike

Mike, if these receptacles are not in "Wet Locations", (see 517.20 and 21) there is no requirement for them to be GFCI protected at this time, however this will change in the 08 cycle.
