Electric Signs

The Louisiana State Uniform Construction Codes were adopted on January 1, 2007.  Part of those codes is the 2011 National Electric Code (NEC) as published by the National Fire Protection Association.  In order to meet compliance with these codes, all electric signs installed in the Parish will now have to comply with Article 600 of the NEC.

 >  Article 600.1 states, that all installation and equipment used to construct signs as described in Article 600 are covered by this article.

 
> Article 600.3 states that all electric signs, fixed, mobile or permanent, shall be listed and installed according to the listing instructions, unless special permission is otherwise approved by the Building Official.

The remainder of Article 600 discusses the actual construction of the signs which is monitored by the listing agency on a regular basis.  These construction details are not designed for the Building Official to use as a "inspection guide".  This is to be done by the Listing agency.

Effective January 1, 2008, all signs installed in City of Bastrop will require permits for installation.  Also, all signs installed are required to be listed by a National Recognized Testing Laboratory.
