NECA recently made available its Guide to State Electrical Codes, Enforcement and Licensing (2002), a reference for contractors, manufacturers, and others who operate in multiple jurisdictions around the country. As its name implies, the guide summarizes information about electrical codes, enforcement and inspection, and contractor and electrician licensing in every state plus the District of Columbia.

Among the information included is whether a state adopts the NEC for regulatory use, whether inspections and Code enforcement are handled on a statewide basis, and applicable fees for licensing.

The guide is free for download in .pdf form from
