Outdoor sump pump GFI?
Sump pump would indicate it's not required if in a basement or crawl space but exterior outlet should be GFI.
Does the sump pump exclusion from GFI protection apply to an outdoor outlet?

Re: Outdoor sump pump GFCI?
Sump pumps are not excluded in the basement or crawlspaces either, since 2005.
Yes, the sump pump requires GFCI protection outdoors too.
