INFORMATIVE ANNEX J. ADA STANDARDS FOR ACCESSIBLE DESIGN
INFORMATIVE ANNEX J. ADA STANDARDS FOR ACCESSIBLE DESIGNThis annex, new with the 2014 NEC, presents ADA design criteria. They are not part of the minimum safety standards in the NEC, although they clearly inform some requirements. For example, 210.52(C)(5) Exception No. 1 (1) takes them into account relative to required receptacle placements on dwelling unit kitchen counters in "construction for the physically impaired." They are presented as a service to users, but they do not constitute the full regulation set.
