On October 2, 2009 Denise C. Jobe, Administrator for the Louisiana State Uniform Construction Code Council announced that the official date for the implementation of the 2008 edition of the National Electrical Code® throughout the entire State of Louisiana is January, 1, 2010.

The Louisiana State Uniform Construction Code Council unanimously adopted the 2008 edition of the National Electrical Code® without amendment on April 14, 2009 after the Louisiana Technical Code Study and Advisory Committee unanimously voted to recommend to the Louisiana State Uniform Construction Code Council that the 2008 edition of the National Electrical Code® be adopted without amendment with an implementation date of January, 1, 2010.

It should be noted that several work shops sponsored by the Building Officials Association of Louisiana in conjunction with the National Electrical Manufacturers Association on the revisions associated with the 2008 edition of the National Electrical Code® have already been presented so that Louisiana inspections, contractors, and electricians can become familiar with the 2008 NEC revisions.
