Section 22, Locations in which corrosive liquids, vapours, or excessive moisture are likely to be present, now contains a new Subsection for farm buildings housing livestock, as well as revised Rules for equipment in Category 1 and 2 locations. The definition for “Voltage — Low voltage” was revised. Clarification was provided on impedance grounded system operation under fault condition in Section 10, Grounding and bonding. New requirements were added for electrical equipment installed near roof decking systems to Section 12, Wiring methods. Load calculations and equipment layout for recreational vehicle lots were updated in Section 72, Mobile home and recreational vehicle parks.
