Electrical Panel Clearance

Does anyone have the actual NEC code reference regarding the clearance from center of panel for working room? I am not at the office where my code book is at and need it? also maybe a picture as well ?


The panel requires a 36" deep x 30" width.

110.26(A)(2) The width of the working space in front of the electric equipment shall be the width of the equipment or 750 mm (30 in.), whichever is greater.

Thanks, Jim and Jeff. I new what the code was I needed the code refference, Jeff you were right on que, thanks. Left my code books at the office and needed the refference.


There is working clearance and then there’s dedicated space requirements. Here are some graphics of each from the NECH:
