    Smile Did We Beat You This Time?

    Normally the Ontario Electrical Code lags the US code. Here's a change coming with our new revision effective May 4. Did we beat you this time?


    "Rule 26-712(g) will require all receptacles in dwellings to be tamper-resistant and marked as such. Tamper-resistant receptacles are designed to protect children from injuries when they try to insert keys and other conductive objects into a receptacle".

    John,

    That requirement is in the 2008 NEC.

    Aaron,

    While not widely adopted across the US, I am sure its adoption covers a greater area than "the Ontario Electrical Code" covers (presuming it only covers Ontario).

    JP: So then, you mean to imply that Florida has not yet adopted the OEC?
