For the first time in 10 years, the NFPA recently compiled all of the National Electrical Code’s rules on residential wiring in one publication in response to requests for a one-stop home wiring code. NFPA 70A, “National Electrical Code Requirements for One- and Two-Family Dwellings,” is organized like the NEC and focuses exclusively on the Code requirements that pertain to the electrical systems of homes.

The requirements cover general power distribution, specialized systems, and equipment like air-conditioning, electric heat, swimming pools, and telecommunications networks.

NFPA 70A was last published in 1993 but then discontinued.
