DPD’s Electrical Program is reviewing the Seattle Electrical Code for changes in 2014. The last code change was in 2008, so it is time for an update. We are looking at the 2011 and 2014 National Electrical Code and current Washington Administrative Code (WAC) rules.
If you are an industry professional with suggestions for changes, we’d like to hear from you. Please use our submittal form, http://www.seattle.gov/dpd/codesrules/codes/electrical/default.htm, to send us the code language you would like adopted and an explanation of why the change is needed. If there are financial impacts related to your proposal, please include that information.
Email your request to SeattleElectricalCode2014@Seattle.Gov. Please put the code section or WAC rule number in the subject line of your email.
