intended as a design specification nor an instructional manual
for a non-licensed electrical practitioner, unless under a
supervision of a licensed electrical practitioner.

Scope of the PEC ( (p.2)
(A) covered
This code covers the
installation of electrical
conductors, equipment, and
raceways; monitoring,
signaling, and communications
conductors, equipment and
raceways; and optical fiber cables and raceways installed within
or on, to or from:

Scope of the PEC ( (p.2)

6) Airfield
7) Railway switchyards
8) Yards, carnival parks,
parking and other lots

Scope of the PEC ( (p.2)
(b) Not Covered
(1) Installation in railway rolling stock, aircraft or
automotive vehicles.
(2) Installation of railways for generation, transformation,
transmission, or distribution of power used exclusively for
operation of rolling stock

7 Enforcement (p.3)
(a) This code is intended for
mandatory application by
government bodies exercising
legal jurisdiction over
electrical installation.

The enforcement of the PEC is the

responsibility of the authority
having jurisdiction (AHJ), who is
responsible for interpreting
requirements, approving
equipment and materials, waiving
Code requirements, and ensuring
that equipment is installed in
accordance with listing

8 Enforcement
Approval of Equipment and
Materials. Only the
authority having jurisdiction
has authority to approve the
installation of equipment
and materials. Typically, the
authority having jurisdiction
will approve equipment
listed by a product testing
organization, but the PEC
doesn’t require all
equipment to be listed.

9 Examination of Equipment
Safety (p.4)
Product evaluation for
safety is typically performed
by a testing laboratory,
which publishes a list of
equipment that meets a
nationally recognized test
standard. Products and
materials listed, labeled, or
identified by a testing
laboratory are generally
approved by the authority
having jurisdiction.
