About the Electrical Code Update Committee

The Indiana Electrical Code Update Committee (the Committee) will review proposed amendments (proposals for code change) to the 2020 edition of the NFPA 70 National Electrical Code. All proposals for code change must be submitted on the proposal for code change form. If no proposals for code change are received by the specified due date, the Committee cannot take action to amend the above-mentioned model codes, which will be deemed as a recommendation to adopt without amendment. If any proposals for code change are "tabled" by the Committee, those proposals must be resubmitted with their corrections as completely new proposals for the following meeting, and will be placed at the end of the Committee's agenda.
