NFPA 70B Recommended Practice for Electrical Equipment Maintenance is open for public input. NFPA 70B details preventive maintenance for electrical, electronic and communication systems and equipment, such as those used in industrial plants, institutional and commercial buildings, and large multi-family residential complexes, to prevent equipment failures and worker injuries. There are many ongoing discussions about whether to convert this recommended practice to a standard. It seems that the timing could be right for such a revision, especially in light of the increasing emphasis on maintenance as it relates to persons and property. Both the NEC and NFPA 70E refer to this NFPA document.
