These requirements do not apply to hardware for the support of conduit, tubing, and cable from a building structure, such as hangers, staples, straps, and similar devices for installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, and the Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code), Part I.

Note: Hardware for the support of conduit, tubing, and cable from a building structure such as hangers, staples, straps, and similar devices for installation in accordance with the National Electrical Code, NFPA 70, and the Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code), Part I are covered in the Standard for Hardware for the Support of Conduit, Tubing, and Cable, CSA C22.2 No. 18.4 or UL 2239.

These requirements do not apply to cable ties or cable tie accessories (See Note 1), coated electrical sleeving (See Note 2), extruded insulating tubing (See Note 3), mechanical protection tubing (See Note 4), metallic or nonmetallic raceways, woven flexible (fiber loom) sleeving or nonmetallic tubing employed as mechanical protection for insulated wires or equipment covered by other standards or requirements.

Note 1: Cable ties and cable tie accessories are covered in the Standard for Cable Ties for Electrical Installations, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 62275 or UL 62275.

Note 2: Coated electrical sleeving is covered in the Standard for Coated Electrical Sleeving, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 198.3 or UL 1441.

Note 3: Extruded insulating tubing is covered in the Standard for Cable Ties for Extruded Insulating Tubing, CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 198.1 or UL 224.

Note 4: Mechanical Protective Tubing (MPT) is covered in the Standard for Mechanical Protection Tubing (MPT) and Fittings, CSA C22.2 No. 227.3 or UL 1696.
