National Electric Code (NEC)
The NEC is published by the National Fire Protection Association or the NFPA. The NEC code is one of the most important tools for the electrician. When used together with electrical code for your local city, the NEC provides the minimum requirements for the installation of electrical systems. Always use the latest edition of the NEC as your reference. It specifies the minimum provisions necessary for protecting people and property from electrical hazards. Since the NEC only specifies minimum requirements, your city or job requirements may be more stringent.
The Primary purpose of the NEC is the practical safeguarding of persons and property from hazards arising from the use of electricity [NEC Section 90.1(A)]. A thorough knowledge of the NEC is one of the first requirements for becoming a trained electrician. The NEC is probably the most widely used and accepted code in the world. It has been translated into several languages. It is used as an electrical installation, safety, and reference guide in the United States. Compliance with NEC standards increases the safety of electrical installations.
Although the NEC itself states “This Code is not intended as a design specification or an instruction manual for untrained persons,” it does provide a sound basis for the study of electrical installation procedures-under proper guidance.
