    NEC Article 350.30 (A) Exception No. 4, states following: “Lengths not exceeding 1.8 m (6 ft) from the last point where the raceway is securely fastened for connections within an accessible ceiling to luminaire(s) or other equipment. For the purposes of 350.30, listed LFMC fittings shall be permitted as a means of securement and support.” 1. I am looking for last sentence clarification “For the purposes of 350.30, listed LFMC fittings shall be permitted as a means of securement and support.” Is this only applicable to Exception 4 for the ceiling luminaries or is it applicable for entire 350.30 (A) and (B) article? 2. Exception 4 allows LFMC fittings as means of securement and support. Do the fittings have to be specifically listed for LFMC support or can they just be listed for use with LFMC?

    Thanks Chris
