A new section of the Code was added to consolidate redundant requirements in chapters 7 and 8

The Code: Section 110.12 (C) Cables and Conductors

Cables and conductors installed exposed on the surfaces of ceilings and sidewalls shall be supported by the building structure in such a manner that the cables and conductors will not be damaged by normal building use. Such cables and conductors shall be secured by hardware including straps, staples, cable ties hangers, or similar fittings designed and installed so as not to damage the cable. The installation shall also conform with 300.4 and 300.11. Nonmetallic cable ties and other nonmetallic cable accessories used to secure and support cables in other spaces used for environmental air (plenums) shall be listed as having low smoke and heat release properties.

Additional Code Considerations

Section 110.12 is titled Mechanical Execution of Work. This means all equipment should be installed in a neat and workmanlike manner, including compliance with 110.12 (C).
