In those cases where a single CP or a group of related CPs affects rules within the scopes of two or more subcommittees, the recommendation of all subcommittees affected are included. Where the recommendation of two or more subcommittees are not compatible with each other, a recommendation by Subcommittee 1, which is responsible for coordination, is also included.
Please note that the subcommittee recommendations herein are subject to further review and revision by the cognizant subcommittee following study and evaluation of all comments received. The subcommittee final recommendation will be prepared for a January 2011 letter ballot of the National Electrical Safety Code Committee. It is anticipated that the approved text will be submitted for American National Standards Institute approval in May 2011, with publication of the NESC 2012 Edition on 1 August 2011.
