For Georgia Inspectors

Don’t forget the code change Jan 1 for AFCI protection.

On January 1, 2010, the Georgia Amendment to Section 210.12 (B) of the 2008 National Electrical Code (NEC) will expire. This will cause Section 210.12 (B) of the 2008 NEC to take effect, requiring AFCI protection throughout dwelling units.

Thanks for the reminder. However, I doubt the local AHJ will fully adopt the requirement for a while yet. I’ll ask.
