This 2014 National Electrical Code (NEC) Changes - Communications Systems - Online Anytime is the eighth of several courses covering the changes in the 2014 edition of the National Electrical Code® (NEC®) created by the NFPA®. The 2014 NEC provides an accurate, reliable, and authoritative account of the hundreds of significant revisions in the 2014 Code. Chapter 8 of the NEC covers the wiring requirements for communications systems such as telephones, radio and TV antennas, satellite dishes, closed-circuit television (CCTV) and cable TV (CATV) systems, as well as network-powered and broadband-powered communications systems. Communications systems are not subject to the general requirements contained in Chapters 1 through 4 or the special requirements of Chapters 5 through 7, except where a Chapter 8 rule specifically refers to one of those chapters. Moreover, installations of communications equipment under the exclusive control of communications utilities located outdoors, or in building spaces used exclusively for such installations, are exempt from the NEC ARTICLE 700 Emergency System.
