Oregon Electrical and Elevator Board Meeting on AFCIs

The State of Oregon Electrical and Elevator Board has added an item to their September 27, 2012 meeting to “review and provide a recommendation on testimony received at public meeting for arc fault circuit interrupter protection”. This was a late submission item on the Board’s agenda and only appeared on their website in recent days.

A temporary ban on the expanded 2008 NEC requirements for AFCI protection was instituted at the May 24, 2012 Board meeting. A meeting was held on August 8, 2012 to receive testimony regarding AFCI’s and whether or not the ban should be made permanent. Written and oral testimony was given by manufacturers, testing labs, NEMA, contractors and installers.

The meeting on Thursday, September 27, 2012 will be to provide a recommendation regarding the testimony received at the August 8 meeting.
