Is there a NEC or regulation code for a pvc y-intercept to a piece of emt conduit for telco for outdoor exposure?

Welcome to the forum.

Can you give us a better idea of what you're looking for?
Customer wants me to install a y-intercept on an existing piece of emt to redirect a new fiber run. The existing pipe has an existing fiber run, in it. They want me to drill and cut the emt and install a pvc wye split pipe on it. I want to know if the NEC allows this or if there is a code against it. I like quality work and would prefer a j-box but I cannot disconnect and pull back the existing fiber.

I would contact the fiber guys, find out how they will perform the actual signal splitting, and make the conduit accommodate them.

I have saw those intercepts on jobs before with fiber pulls. I can’t believe there are companies that make them, but there are...

is it legal? Sure.
Does it look like crap? Sure does
