I actually really do find the NFPA to be dysfunctional and incompetent. Obviously I can't speak to the inner workings of the organization, but judging by the NEC. just the continually poor wording they come out with, and hardly ever fixing older poor wording it just goes on and on without getting fixed. There are these ambiguous things in the code and poor wording that we've been talking about on this form for decades and they just never fix it. Then look at that debacle with SER ampacity that they fussed around with over several code cycles and then ended up just putting it back the way it was. Another thing is all these ridiculous things, that have been in the code forever with no scientific backing, like that 25 ohm ground rod requirement, and they never update or address that. it's just unbelievably to me how poor a job they do despite this standard being adopted almost everywhere in the United States and many places abroad.
93% of the world rejects NFPA-70. I think that should speak for itself.
