Q. In an EMT installation, does the equipment grounding conductor need to be connected to each junction box if the boxes contain no splices (the conductors are pulled straight through)?

A. No. Only when circuit conductors are spliced or terminated on equipment within a metal box does the equipment grounding conductor associated with those circuits need to be connected to the box [250.148].
