The 2020 NFPA 70®, National Electrical Code® (NEC) is officially printed, presenting the latest comprehensive regulations for electrical wiring, overcurrent protection, grounding, and installation of equipment. The NEC releases significant revisions and new requirements every three years to ensure the utmost amount of safety and protection as technology continues to evolve and expand. Remaining at the forefront of knowledge and complying with modifications to industry standards is required to avoid costly rework or safety violations.

All sign installers must be aware of the significant revision made on page 70-513 600.33 © of the latest NEC that states, "All through-wall penetrations shall be protected by a LISTED bushing or raceway." Penetration includes going through the wall of a raceway to the letter and going through a building wall from the letter to the opposing side. The revised code standards become effective January 1, 2020, and local inspectors will begin enforcing the code. Products that are UL Recognized will no longer be acceptable and will not pass code inspections. To be considered code-compliant the product must be designated with a UL Listed symbol. Also, if a sign builder chooses to use conduit, it and its fitting must be "UL LISTED."

Hefty fines, legal costs, and replacement fees yield dissatisfied customers and wasted time and money.
