Quick Fact: The adopted code is considered the minimum statewide, but local jurisdictions can adopt codes that are newer (i.e. NEC-2020). Enforcement can be minimal itself as there are only a small number of inspectors covering the entire state outside of Anchorage, Fairbanks, and Juneau. (Send us an update):
