kitchen outlets

Anyone know what year the 24 inch requirement went into effect regarding outlet distance on kitchen countertops?


Just dont quote me wrong but IIRC i think it went effect way back on 1999 or 2002 code cycle if i am wrong on let me know.

Merci, Marc

Thanks Marc, I’ll use that as a starting point and revert if I find differently.


1993 of the NEC

Thanks Mike for filling in that part no wonder i am missing one code book ughh LOL but i have 1996 and 1999 and 2002 and 2005 but the first two i have 96 and 99 both were printed in french for me ]

Merci, Marc

Look at your 1990 book <ducking and pulling up my arc flash PPE>
