Practical Interpretations and Applications of Electrical Code Rules
Our Canadian Electrical Code is divided into five parts as follows:
This is most familiar to us because it is the set of Rules we are required to apply daily in all our electrical work. This is the standard normally adopted in part or in whole by the provincial authority in each province. Once this set of Rules has been adopted it becomes the legal document which must be complied with and which cannot be altered by bulletin or directive.
This is the minimum standard manufacturers of all electrical items must comply with in order to obtain a certification mark on their product. The process of obtaining a certification mark is described in Section 2, page 5. We who install electrical wiring are always concerned and look for that certification mark which is recognized in Canada but we, as installers, do not apply this mark. If the equipment does not already have a valid certification mark we may not connect it.
This is the set of rules used to regulate overhead power line construction. It is the standard adopted by Provincial Authority that regulates electrical line construction.
This standard deals with magnetic interference cause by electrical installations.
This standard regulates electrical installations in mines and above ground wiring directly associated with the mine.
