PURPOSE AND SCOPE.
The purpose of this UFC is to provide technical requirements for general aspects of the electrical design of projects. Apply the criteria provided in this UFC for the development of the plans, specifications, calculations, and Design/Build Request for Proposals (RFP). It serves as the minimum electrical design requirements for design-build and design-bid-build projects. Project conditions may dictate the need for a design that exceeds these minimum requirements.
Compliance with this UFC is mandatory for the design of electrical systems at all facilities and bases.
Facilities located outside of the United States must also comply with the applicable host nation standards; refer to UFC 3-510-01 for additional information. Different voltages, frequencies, and grounding conventions often apply in other host nations; however, follow the design principles provided in this UFC to the extent practical, as well as the requirements provided in UFC 1-202-01, Host Nation Facilities in Support of Military Operations. U.S. Department of Commerce International Trade Administration document, Electric Current Abroad, provides additional information and can be obtained at http://www.ita.doc.g
