New restrictions for use of certain reconditioned equipment


Reconditioned Equipment: Electromechanical systems, equipment, apparatus, or components that are restored to operating conditions. This process differs from normal servicing of equipment that remains within a facility, or replacement of listed equipment on a one-to-one basis

The Code: Section 210.15 Reconditioned Equipment

The following shall not be reconditioned:

(1) Equipment that provides ground-fault circuit-interrupter (GFCI) protection for personnel

(2) Equipment that provides arc-fault circuit-interrupter (AFCI) protection

(3) Equipment that provides ground-fault protection (GFP) of equipment

Other Notes

  • Marking requirements for reconditioned, refurbished, or remanufactured equipment located at 110.21(A)(2)
  • Several other new sections were added throughout the 2020 NEC regarding permission or restriction for equipment being reconditioned
