Regardless of whether or not you own or rent your residence or have children, tamper resistant receptacles are required. Even if you don’t have children living with you, children of friends and relatives require protection when visiting. Also, electrical shock and burn accidents related to contact with an electrical outlet are not limited to children.
The National Electrical Code (NEC) is the standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States. The NEC, while having no legally binding regulation as written, is generally adopted by states and municipalities as the standards by which they enforce safe electrical practices within their jurisdiction. Considered the benchmark for safe electrical installations, the NEC is published by The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) every three years.
