The revision process for the 2011 National Electrical Code® (NEC) is underway, and revision proposals are due to NFPA by 5:00 p.m. ET on November 7, 2008.
NEMA Sections considering the submittal of proposals for approval as NEMA proposals by the Codes and Standards Committee are encouraged to do so as soon as possible to ensure sufficient time for review by other Sections and for the resolution of comments on the proposals. For the 2008 NEC, NEMA Sections submitted 67 proposals, and 51 of these were approved as NEMA proposals and submitted to NFPA.
All Section proposals will be posted to the 2011 NEC Forum on the NEMA website, and members will be informed of the postings by the Program Managers. (Proposals developed by individual members will not considered for approval as NEMA proposals.) The 2011 NEC Forum is “Private” and “Read Only” meaning that only NEMA members may access the Forum, that access must be provided by the manager of the Forum, and that members cannot post proposals to the Forum directly.
Sections are encouraged to review all proposals submitted by other NEMA Sections and to indicate their support or opposition and to comment on the proposals through their Program Manager. Comments on proposals are also posted to the 2011 NEC Forum adjacent to the proposal. The Section that submitted the proposal may choose to rebut the comment, to revise the proposal based on the comment(s), or to do nothing. When two or more NEMA Sections disagree on a proposal that has been submitted for approval as a NEMA proposal, they are encouraged to work out the differences prior to the proposal being considered by the Codes and Standards Committee.
The final date for submittal of Section proposals for approval by the Codes and Standards Committee is August 20, 2008. After that date, individual members may submit proposals to NFPA, but not as NEMA proposals. The Codes and Standards Committee will consider Section proposals for approval as NEMA proposals at its August 20-21 and October 22-23, 2008 meetings.
Additional information on NEMA’s process for submittal and approval of proposals for the 2011 NEC is provided in the NEMA Milestones and Guidelines for the 2011 NEC, which is available through the Program Managers.
Sales and manufacturing representatives are invited by the Nuclear Energy Institute to attend two innovative trade shows in Cleveland on April 14 and Columbia, SC, on March 27. Co-sponsored by the National Association of Manufacturers, the show will contain booths set up by engineering procurement companies that sales and manufacturing representatives may visit.
Join industry leaders in reactor design, engineering, construction, and procurement to learn how your company can become part of the growing, dynamic nuclear energy market. These workshops will provide a unique opportunity to interact with key decision-makers from leading firms. You will also hear firsthand about the market outlook for the nuclear sector, learn what is required to enter the market, and interact directly with key procurement staff.
The nuclear industry is set for resurgence across the country and around the world. Already, the nuclear industry has submitted six license applications to the NRC for as many as 10 new nuclear reactors, with the possibility that companies may file applications for another 10 to 18 reactors in the next 15 months. The industry has spent more than $2 billion on new nuclear plant activities, including the ordering of long-lead components.
