Round 1 of the 2023 NEC: A Summary of Proposed Changes

by | Jul 26, 2021 | 0 comments |

While 2020 was quite the year, and quite a strange one at that, we all had to adjust our way of working. This was also true of the National Electrical Code. A process that relies on the interpersonal actions of technical committees had to resort to online meetings using Microsoft Teams. This meeting took place over a six-week period and all virtual. Unlike an in-person meeting of the same length, it was less grueling and allowed them to get out the first draft.
The first draft report was published online at www.nfpa.org/70next on July 2, 2020. The closing date for public comments is August 19, 2021, so you still have time to get your comments in at the time you’re reading this.
A new edition of the NEC Style Manual was approved by the NFPA Standards Council late last year. That mundane document establishes the rules for how the NEC is put together. Most of us will never see it, but those of us who work or have worked at the Code process rely on the manual to provide a uniform structure to the Code. The changes discussed in this article are proposed changes; this is only the first draft.
