Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

I have just received a faxed copy of EMC 82-8. I'm grateful to have received it. I suspect it is not the only section I need.

Unless there is a copyright issue (very doubtful), it would be extremely helpful to have the entire Electrical Code Manual available online.

Thank you for your patience, and for using Los Angeles County's FAQ system. We are currently updating and posting our Electrical Code Manuals on the Los Angeles County Public works website ("LADPW" link located below).

These documents will be accessed by selecting "Forms" in pull down list located in the "search" field, at the top right hand corner of the "LADPW" webpage. Then type in "ECM", in the "for" field located to the right of the "search" field. Then, click on the "Go" button, located to the right of the "for" field. A list of Electrical Code Manuals will be available to download in PDF format.

However, at this time, not all of our Electrical Code Manuals have been posted on our website. We are working on this process diligently, and are continually updating this database. We ask that you continue to check our searchable database, for any updates that may have taken place.

Please feel free to call us for any Electrical Code Manual questions, or any Electrical Code Manual Requests that you may have. You can contact the Electrical Section at our Headquarters office: 626-458-3180 or 3181.

Thank you again for your inquiry.
