DPD has created an internal staff committee to develop the 2011 Seattle Electrical Code. The 2011 Seattle Electrical Code will be a combination of the 2011 National Electrical Code and Seattle amendments. The committee is preparing a list of discussion items, code issues, and possible modifications to update the electrical code. Staff’s draft recommendations will be reviewed by a public committee. This committee’s recommendations will be submitted to the Construction Code Advisory Committee (CCAB) by March 2011. After CCAB reviews and votes on the electrical code, the code will be submitted for adoption.
DPD welcomes input from the public. If you have suggestions to improve the Seattle electrical code, please submit comments by February 1, 2011. To submit comments, and for more information, contact:
