*Currently we are enforcing the 2014 National Electrical Code. As of October 2016, New York State has adopted the 2014 NEC for both residential and non-residential construction.
*2014 National Electrical Code was adopted as part of the Uniform Code and Energy code; the effective date is October 3, 2016.
*Adoption type. State-wide. All local jurisdictions, with the exception of New York City, are required to adopt and enforce the code.
*It appears that New York State is on track to adopt the 2018 ICC Building Code in January of 2020. If the 2018 ICC Building Code does get adopted and becomes law by New York State, the 2017 National Electrical Code will be enforced. In preparation for the upcoming Code changes, New York Electrical Inspection Agency will be offering Electrical Code Change Classes. Please visit our Continuing Education Classes page on this website for additional information.
**Please note, that once the code is adopted, there is a six month grace period where the 2014 NEC Code would still be applicable.
