Development of the Georgia Electrical Code
April 1, 2008 the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) will establish a
committee to consider if Georgia will adopt the 2008 NEC as a whole or with
amendments attached in order to provide a Georgia Electrical Code. The new code
is expected to go into effect on January 1, 2009.
You have an opportunity NOW to
have your voice heard concerning the New Georgia Electrical Code. The DCA will
be accepting code amendments for the next six to eight weeks.
We suggest you review the 2008
National Electrical Code and if desired complete a amendment form and return it
to DCA within the next few weeks.
The forms can be obtained from
the web site below. After clicking on the web site (scroll to the bottom of the
page and select "Code Amendment Instructions and Form").
