PURPOSE AND SCOPE.
This Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) has been issued to provide guidance for the design of interior electrical systems. The criteria contained herein are intended to ensure economical, durable, efficient, and reliable systems and installations. Whenever unique conditions and problems are not specifically covered by this UFC, use the applicable referenced industry standards and other documents for design guidance.
UFC 3-501-01 provides the governing criteria for electrical systems, explains the delineation between the different electrical-related UFCs, and refers to UFC 3-520-01 for interior electrical system requirements. Modernization of electrical systems within existing facilities solely for the purpose of meeting design criteria in this UFC is not required. Upgrades or modifications of existing facilities must apply the design criteria in this UFC, but it is not intended that an entire facility require modernization solely because of a minor modification to a part of the facility.
