I have a question about removing the dead front to the service panel. I had tried to look through old forums but didn’t really find anything,
My question is that it says in the SOP as follows
The inspector shall inspect:
F. service-entrance conductors;
G. the main service disconnect;
H. panelboards and over-current protection devices (circuit breakers and fuses);
Then it says the following
IV. The inspector is not required to:
C. remove panelboard cabinet covers or dead fronts.
I guess I’m a bit confused that it says we are to inspect the main disconnect and breakers and fuses but then it says we are not required to remove the deadfront. I think most H.I’s do open it but just looking for feedback on this on what is required and what is not.
I am located in Ontario, Canada so I am trying to see what the standards are here.
