October 1. Calendar on white background. 3D illustration.
New Codes Take Effect 10/1/18

approved code for residential projects; in Philadelphia, commercial work will be specified to the 2017 National Electrical Code.  Jumping two and three code cycles ahead is a significant advancement and will likely require you and your employees to become familiar with the new set of standards.  EAP is already in the final planning stages to host a class which will take place late summer (learn more below).  Don't miss your change to get a jump on code changes before the busyness of September starts!


Wishing you and your staff great summer and a safe Fourth of July!
