2002 nec v. 2005 nec

Just realized that I have been using a 2005 copy of the nec, and my state still uses the 2002 nec. Figured this out when I looked up the local additions. How different are the two and am I likely be in violation on the work I have done pursuant to the 2005 according to the 2002 nec?

Ultimately this question can only be answered by your local building inspector, as they are the authority in this matter.

Generally .... The 2005 is more restrictive than 2002 but not in all cases.

Leviton has a booklet that highlights the changes relevant to most installations.
