    Default Re: White Conductors used as "Hot"

    This might do it........

    from the 06 irc

    E3307.3 Ungrounded conductors.
    Insulation on the
    ungrounded conductors shall be a continuous color other than
    white, gray and green.

    Exceptions:
    1. An insulated conductor that is part of a cable or flexible
    cord assembly and that has a white or gray finish
    or a finish marking with three continuous white
    stripes shall be permitted to be used as an ungrounded
    conductor where it is permanently reidentified to
    indicate its use as an ungrounded conductor at all terminations
    and at each location where the conductor is
    visible and accessible. Identification shall encircle the
    insulation and shall be a color other than white, gray,
    and green.
    2. Where a cable assembly contains an insulated conductor
    for single-pole, 3-way or 4-way switch loops
    and the conductor with white or gray insulation or a
    marking of three continuous white stripes is used for
    the supply to the switch but not as a return conductor
    from the switch to the switched outlet. In these applications,
    the conductor with white or gray insulation or
    with three continuous white stripes shall be permanently
    reidentified to indicate its use by painting or
    other effective means at its terminations and at each
    location where the conductor is visible and accessible.
