  • A new article on Critical Operations Power Systems with provisions for electrical security in public and private facilities that must stay online during a crisis, such as public safety dispatch centers and hospital ICUs.
  • A new article on Electrified Truck Parking Spaces with NEC rules for outlets to run on-board electrical systems, reducing truck emissions and fuel consumption caused by idling during driver rest times.
  • New provisions in Article 210, Article 410, and elsewhere in the Code reduce worker hazards and correlate with NFPA 70E worker safety rules
  • Plus hundreds of other revisions!

Usability changes facilitate your work! You'll find greater consistency in grounding and bonding terminology. New shading behind revised text that lets you see what's new at a glance, and new identifiers at the top of each page in the NEC index for speedier referencing.
