Unit 3. Lab 1. Building a New Structure- NFPA Codes
NFPA 1, Fire Code, advances fire and life safety for the public and first responders as well as property protection by providing a comprehensive, integrated approach to fire code regulation and hazard management. It addresses all the bases with extracts from and references to more than 130 NFPA® codes and standards including such industry benchmarks as NFPA 101, NFPA 54, NFPA 58, NFPA 30, NFPA 13, NFPA 25, and NFPA 72.
Requirements cover the full range of fire and life safety issues from fire protection systems and equipment and occupant safety in new and existing buildings to hazardous materials, flammable and combustible liquids, LP-Gas, and more.

S. law, NEC use is commonly mandated by state or local law, as well as in many jurisdictions outside of the United States. The NEC codifies the requirements for safe electrical installations into a single, standardized source.
Part 68 (47 C.F.R. Part 68) governs the direct connection of Terminal Equipment (TE) to the Public Switched Telephone Network (PSTN), and to wireline carrier-owned facilities used to provide private line services.
Part 68 also contains rules concerning Hearing Aid Compatibility and Volume Control (HAC/VC) for telephones, dialing frequency for automated dialing machines, source identification for fax transmissions, and technical criteria for inside wiring.

1.1 These requirements cover interlocked steel or aluminum armored cables that contain 2, 3, or 4, 14 - 1 AWG insulated circuit conductors with or without grounding conductors and are for use as Type AC Armored Cable in accordance with Article 320 and other applicable parts of the National Electrical Code (NEC), ANSI/NFPA 70.
1.2 These requirements cover cables for use at potentials of 600 V or less and at temperatures that are not higher than 75°C (167°F) for Type ACTH, or 90°C (194°F) for Types ACHH and ACTHH, depending upon the temperature rating of the insulated conductors used. Cables with aluminum armor are suitable only for use with connectors other than the direct-bearing set-screw type and only in alternating-current circuits.
