Visitors to necplus.org will have first access to code
August 23, 2010 – The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) is offering visitors to necplus.org an opportunity to be the first to preview the 2011 edition of the National Electrical Code® (NEC) at no cost. Visitors selecting a one-day preview from necplus® will have first access to the 2011 edition of the NEC.
“The release of the 2011 edition of the NEC is highly anticipated by everyone involved with electrical installations because it sets the standard for safety,” said Mark Earley, NFPA’s chief electrical engineer. “We wanted to offer everyone who depends on this information an opportunity to be the first to preview the full document, before the printed version is available.”
The 2011 NEC includes hundreds of changes that will directly affect electrical installations nationwide, expanded coverage of alternative energy sources and green technologies, and new requirements focused on protecting electrical personnel from deadly hazards.
necplus offers online access to the most current, comprehensive NEC content available along with Q&As, articles, NFPA staff commentary, diagrams and pictures of the code in action, UL White Book links, and the reason behind any code changes.
In addition to serving as the source for public education materials on electrical safety and research on fires involving electricity, NFPA has a long history of commitment to electrical safety as developer and publisher of the National Electrical Code (NEC) since 1911. The NEC sets the standard for the safe use of electricity and electrical installations. It is the most widely used code for the built-environment in the world. The 2011 NEC is the 52nd Edition of the code and 2011 will mark 100 years of NFPA sponsorship.
