Protect those around you and help build a safer world with the 2017 NFPA 70®: National Electrical Code! The NEC® is the benchmark for safe electrical design, installation, and inspection to protect people and property from electrical hazards. Revisions in the 2017 are easily identified – gray shading indicates technical changes, an “N” icon flags new Articles, text, tables and figures. Bullets show where paragraphs were deleted. The 2017 NEC includes the latest comprehensive regulations for wiring, overcurrent protection, grounding, and installation. Hundreds of updates and five all-new Articles pave the way to safer, more efficient electrical installations. Five first-time Articles include Energy Storage Systems (Article 706) and Direct Current Microgrids (Article 712). New detailed labeling for arc flash hazard warning on equipment protects workers. Revised provisions for AFCI and GFCI protection and other changes help improve electrical and fire safety.



  • Spell check

    Like the app, only draw back is for those of us that can’t spell, the search function needs a spell check function or a auto correct, if that happens it would be a five star!
  • Could Be So Much Better

    By Wessmith123
    With just a little more effort this could be an absolutely awesome tool. 1) Add the ability to bookmark pages. 2) Add the ability to highlight key words and sentences.
  • Great App

    By Shoultzttttt
    Easy to use on the phone, lighter then the book and always available. I wish we could share the app with a mac book though, as an apprentice it would make doing homework and research that much easier!

    How do the justify not having these two critical components of the NEC?
  • Useful reference

    By Lub Dub
    Informative. Navigation within the App takes some effort at first. Not intuitive. Search feature if great. Well worth the cost

    Love it! I love having the code book in my pocket at all times. The search and index features are great...fastest way to find info!
  • NEC® 2017 App has arrived!

    By electrotechnic
    The iOS version is the handiest form to access the National Electrical Code® when a print copy is not at-hand, maybe even handier than the print copy, what with its very robust search features. It's the version I use the most. The only demerit is that the 2017 version, unlike the 2014 version, no longer allows you to SEE the Parts of Articles (if you select the right Section). NFPA, please fix this! The IDEAL SOLUTION would be to see and SELECT Parts of Articles from the "READ THE NEC®" table of contents, just like Sections.
