Should questions about building codes and electrical codes be considered on-topic? StackExchange sites usually shy away from narrowly localized questions, but building and electrical codes have many commonalities within the United States. And knowing the answer even for a different locality than your own is informative: at the very least, it helps you find the terms to search for in your local code.
I'd be erring on the side of caution and saying "Off Topic" - as you said, they're SO localised.
And I don't mean any offense to anyone, but the fact of the matter is that a lot of people forget that there's a big wide world out there and that their codes may not be the same as someone elses.
For example, I saw a question regarding rewiring electrical sockets, and the colours they used for the wiring are different to the colours we use in Australia, which may cause problems if I were an Australian coming on here and seeing "Oh, look, brown = neutral" when in fact brown = active.
