Adoption of the National Electric Code by States and Jurisdictions Now Online


The National Electrical Manufacturers Assn. now offers a comprehensive online report showing the adoption of the National Electrical Code (NEC) by states and major local jurisdictions.

NEC takes on real significance when it is adopted into law by states and local jurisdictions. However, the timing for adoption of installation codes is different by locales, and some local jurisdictions adopt the code with state or local amendments, resulting in different electrical codes being enforced in different parts of the U.S.

NEMA's field representatives have tracked the adoption of NEC in their respective territories and have developed a report that identifies which electrical codes are enforced where.

The result is the “NEC Adoption Report,” which can be conveniently viewed on the web, or downloaded as an Excel file. Both versions are updated as new information becomes available.

The report is available to all NEMA members at no extra charge. Non-members can access the password-protected website at a minimal subscription fee. For more information, go to .
