Clint_s Controls Corner Logo Each month, our Lighting Controls Department Manager, Clint Conley, offers insight and advice about lighting controls. Clint, a licensed professional electrical engineer, brings over 15 years of construction, engineering, and lighting controls experience to the table. He takes the often confusing topic of lighting controls, and presents information in a straightforward and concise manner.

As we know, many jurisdictions in this region have now adopted the 2015 version of the IECC. This code has major ramifications to what is required for lighting controls in all commercial construction. The highlights have been discussed in  previous Controls Corner articles.

However, there is one requirement that continues to be very difficult for all stakeholders in the construction process. This is the requirement of "Functional Testing" included under section C408 "System Commissioning" in the 2015 IECC. In this section, C408.3 specifically covers lighting controls and the requirements to comply with the code.
