Published on December 13, 2010
December 13, 2010 – The 2011 edition of the NEC® Handbook is now integrated with the 2011 NEC® on necplus®, National Fire Protection Association’s (NFPA) online subscription to the NEC, enhancing the online tool.

NFPA’s National Electrical Code® Handbook is the authoritative source for providing expert explanations to augment the understanding of the NEC. Meanwhile, necplus offers instant electronic access to the most relevant information available on the NEC and NFPA 70E®.

According to Mark W. Earley, P.E., NFPA’s chief electrical engineer, and Editor-in-Chief of the 2011 NEC Handbook, “combining the legacy of the NEC Handbook with the power of necplus meets the industry’s demand for an informational tool that’s timely, comprehensive and accessible at the click of a mouse.”

The 2011 NEC Handbook serves as a comprehensive resource for complying with the latest 2011 NEC, and provides reasoning for changes and updates. It features expert commentary on the code requirements and more than 500 full-color photographs and illustrations such as schematics, floor plans and cross-sectional graphics to help interpret code language. This is all now available online on necplus, making it easily navigable and fully searchable alongside the code that individuals already use.
