NFPA's electrical experts helped NFPA Journal staff comb through the 3,500 proposals and 1,600 comments submitted for the 2014 edition of NFPA 70 ®, National Electrical Code®. The outcome was a recent Journal article highlighting the top proposed changes to the code that is already generating a healthy buzz.
For instance, the expanded use of arc-fault circuit interruptors, devices designed to detect electrical arcing and de-energize a circuit before a fire occurs, has prompted a healthy debate among safety advocates and the National Association of Home Builders. Safety concerns surrounding green technology has led to proposals to increase the NEC's voltage threshold. Even electrial safeguards at recreational vehicle parks have initiated some serious discussions.
Learn more about these issues in the latest issue of NFPA Journal. And mark your calendar: NEC topics receiving a Notice of Intent to Make a Motion will be discussed at NFPA's Conference & Expo, June 13, in Chicago.
