State of Kentucky
On November 30, 2011 the State of Kentucky approved the adoption of the 2011 NEC in the Kentucky Building Code without amendment. Any project for which an application for permit is received between now and January 31, 2012 has the choice to use the 2008 NEC or the 2011 NEC due to a grace period currently in effect. However, the 2011 NEC will become mandatory for all buildings in the state on February 1, 2012.
This adoption will provide a great benefit to the citizens of Kentucky by increasing the electrical safety of new buildings constructed in the state.
