Distance For Outlet from Baseboard Heater

Hi:
I understand that an outlet may not be above an electric baseboard heater. My question: what is the minimum allowed distance from an electric baseboard heater for an outlet?

Thanks.

It cannot be above the heater. It can, however, be right next to it. Therefor the clearance (in the horizontal direction) to the edge of the box is zero inches.
