The states of North Dakota and New Hampshire recently announced plans to adopt the latest edition of the National Electrical Code. The North Dakota State Electrical Board and the New Hampshire State Electricians’ Board voted to implement the 2002 NEC effective April 1, 2002, and July 1, 2002, respectively.

“The statewide use and adoption of the NEC will maintain a high level of public safety while helping to strengthen New Hampshire’s safety infrastructure,” said New Hampshire State Fire Marshal Don Bliss. “The people of New Hampshire can feel safer knowing that they are protected by the fundamental building block for electrical safety.”
