Adoption of 2014 edition of National Electrical Code® underway in 15 states
The 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code® was issued by the NFPA Standards Council on August 1, 2013. The effective date, which is the date that it replaces the prior (2011 edition) in the NFPA family of codes and standards, was August 21, 2013. As of that date, the 2014 NEC became officially available for adoption by federal, state, county, and municipal governmental entities. To date, 15 states have started the process to update the statute or administrative rule through which the NEC is adopted to reference the 2014 edition. In a couple of states, the update is from the 2008 to the 2014 edition.
