(F) Design Analysis.
Design analysis shall be included on the drawings or shall be submitted on separate sheets of standard size, and shall show:

- Protection coordination of overcurrent protective devices;
- Arc-Flash Hazard Analysis to determine the required personal protective equipment (PPE) i other than dwelling place – (see Appendix H for PPE)
FPN No. 1: This analysis is not required for dwelling units but required for service equipment and other electrical equipment n part of the individual dwelling units of residential condominium and individual detached dwelling units.
FPN No. 2: Arc-flash hazard analysis required is intended or concerned parties to be informed and made aware of the importance of personal protective equipment (PPE) and its Or the flash hazard risk category determined by the analysis: further overcurrent protective devices coordination coupled With lash hazard analysis can reduce the severity of PPE needed but is not required under this arc-flash hazard analysis.
