Jerry … I also don’t have a problem working with many building and industry codes including the NBC, UBC, SBC, CABO, ICC, NEC, NESC, ASCE, ACI, AISC, NDS, WFCM, and many others. But IMHO that is not the norm for an HI, and Patrick’s reaction to the NEC is fairly typical.
Tim ... the IRC electrical sections are not a direct copy of the NEC sections that relate to residential construction, but very close.
In many cases several NEC sections/paragraphs, sometimes in different NEC Articles, were combined into one section/paragraph under the IRC, and sometimes confusing language or exceptions necessary for non-residential installations eliminated or re-written into "plain" language. The 2003 IRC has a cross reference to the NEC included, and for the 2000 IRC cross reference to the NEC see this link:
All the sections from the 700 plus page NEC that relate to residential electric work combined in one handy 70 page code section with illustrations ... it's a beautiful thing for an HI ... ![icon_wink.gif](upload://ssT9V5t45yjlgXqiFRXL04eXtqw.gif)
