A change bar, located in the left hand margin, signifies the specific material that the various subcommittees each have approved for the inclusion in the revised Code.
The deadline for receipt of comments on the Proposal Revision contained herein is 1 May 2015. All comments shall be submitted through the website shown below. Only comments that are submitted electronically through the website will be accepted. For instructions, see:

In those cases where a single CP or a group of related CPs affects rules within the scopes of two or more subcommittees, the recommendations of all subcommittees affected are included. Where there are recommendations of two or more subcommittees, a recommendation by Subcommittee 1, which is responsible for coordination, is also included as the final proposed change in this phase of the NESC revision cycle.
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 in the Fall of 2015. The subcommittee final recommendation will be prepared for a February 2016 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 2016, with publication of the NESC 2017 Edition on 1 August 2016.
