National Electrical Code (NEC)

National Electrical Code (NEC) is a set of minimum standards and regulations that governs planning, construction, and installation of electrical conductors and equipment. The NEC is the basis for all electrical codes used in the United States.

A governmental body having legal jurisdiction over an installation site could apply NEC regulations alone, or it could apply even more restrictive mandatory codes, e.g. local codes.
