New Jersey Briefly Delays Official Adoption of 2014 NEC

NEMA reported the code alert last week.

The State of New Jersey has officially adopted the 2014 version of the National Electrical Code but has delayed the publication of the New Jersey Register. NEMA originally reported this news via a Code Alert in August:

"The State of New Jersey, Dept. of Community Affairs, Division of Code and Standards will officially adopt the 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC) with amendments upon the publication in the New Jersey Register on September 8, 2015, as the official electrical sub-code of the New Jersey Uniform Construction Code (NJAC 5:23). The electrical sub-code will have a six-month grace period ending on March 8, 2016."

NEMA published an update today, stating:

"There will be a delay until September 21, 2015 for the State of New Jersey, Dept. of Community Affairs, Division of Code and Standards to officially publish in the New Jersey Register the official Uniform Construction Code. The previous alert gave a publication date of September 8, 2015. The new date will officially adopt the 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code (NEC) w/amendments upon the publication in the Register. The electrical sub-code will have a six-month grace period ending on March 21, 2016."
