Electric Code

There are several Electric Codes.  The UMD Library has access to the paper copy (U.S. or NFPA) Electric Code.  It is Chapter 70 of the National Fire Codes (REF TH9111 .N375a).  The UMD Library has electronic access to the National Electrical Safety Code (which is an explanation of the National Electric Code). To access this item, go to the IEEExPLORE through the UMD Library and then type in National Electrical Safety Code. You must be a current UMD student, faculty, or staff to access this material when you are not in the library.

There is also the International Electric Code pubished by the ICC.  A copy is on order for the UMD Library.

Both titles are referenced in the Minnesota Building Codes.
