NC 2020 National Electrical Code Amendments (Effective Date October 1, 2021)

This document was created to aid those in the electrical industry in identifying the most significant changes from the 2017 to the 2020 State Electrical Code. The 2017 Amendments that were retained without any changes and new 2020 Amendments that delete new requirements in the 2020 NEC are not discussed in this document because the application of the State Code does not change.

This document and the 2020 State Electrical Code Amendments should also be incorporated into national reference material. The text of this document is commentary and shall not be considered official interpretations from the State Electrical Division. This document is not an all-inclusive analysis of changes.
