Item ‘T’ was changed, at my request, to limit the electrical ‘inspection’ to readily accessible. The ASHI language was NOT adopted.
#5 under T allows you to say that the dead front cover was on and there are no unused openings in the panel. It does NOT give you permission to open a panel.
In Ohio, the interior of a panel cover is NOT allowed to be readily accessible. That is one of the things that I am required to verify. If the interior is not protected and is readily accessible the installation FAILS.
