Full Description

Scope

The NESC covers: 1. Supply and communication facilities (including metering) and associated work practices employed by a public or private electric supply, communications, railway, trolley, street and area lighting, traffic signal (or other signal), irrigation district or other community owned utility, or a similar utility in the exercise of its function as a utility. 2. The generation, transmission, and distribution of electricity, lumens, communication signals, and communication data through public and private utility systems that are installed and maintained under the exclusive control of utilities or their authorized representatives. 3. Utility facilities and functions of utilities that either (a) generate energy by conversion from some other form of energy such as, but not limited to, fossil fuel, chemical, electrochemical, nuclear, solar, mechanical, wind or hydraulic or communication signals, or accept energy or communication signals from another entity, or (b) provide that energy or communication signals through a delivery point to another entity. 4. Street and area lights that provide a supply of lumens where these facilities are supplied from the line side of the service point by underground or overhead conductors maintained and/or installed under the exclusive control of utilities (including their authorized contractors or other qualified persons). 5. Utility facilities and functions on the line side of the service point supplied by underground or overhead conductors maintained and/or installed under exclusive control of utilities located on public or private property in accordance with legally established easements or rights-of-way, contracts, other agreements (written or by conditions of service), or as authorized by a regulating or controlling body. 6. Wiring within a supply station or in an underground facility that is (a) installed in accordance with Part 1 or Part 3 of this Code and maintained under the exclusive control of utilities and (b) necessary for the operation of the supply station or underground facility. 7. Utility facilities installed, maintained, and controlled by utilities on surface or underground mine sites, including overhead or underground distribution systems providing service up to buildings or outdoor equipment locations on the line side of the service point. 8. Similar systems to those listed above that are under the exclusive control of qualified persons and authorized by a regulating or controlling body, including those associated with an industrial complex or utility interactive system.

Purpose

The purpose of the NESC is the practical safeguarding of persons during the installation, operation, and maintenance of electric supply and communication facilities, under specified conditions. NESC rules contain the basic provisions, under specified conditions, that are considered necessary for the safeguarding of the public and utility workers (employees and contractors).

Abstract:

The 2023 NESC® covers practical safeguarding of persons during the installation, operation, or maintenance of (1) electric supply stations, (2) overhead supply and communications lines, and (3) underground or buried supply and communication cables. It also includes work rules for the operation of electric supply and communications lines and equipment. This Code consists of the introduction, definitions, grounding rules, lists of referenced and bibliographic documents, and Parts 1, 2, 3, and 4 of the 2023 Edition of the National Electrical Safety Code.
