MA Electric Code Update

The Massachusetts Electrical Code Advisory Committee is currently reviewing the 2023 National Electric Code (NEC) for amendments and eventual adoption as the 527 CMR 12.00:  Massachusetts Electrical Code. The 2023 NEC could be applicable as soon as January 2023.

Projects should be mindful that the applicable Massachusetts Electrical Code vests with the application of the electrical install permit rather than the building code permit.

Code Red Consultants will continue to monitor this review process and update as adoption dates are finalized.  For additional information or request for assistance on your project, please contact us at
