Kitchen receptacle code

This one is for the New England area (MA)- Is it a code requirement to have a 6-outlet power strip on the underside of a center kitchen island? A customer wants theirs removed and replaced with a single, duplex receptacle. Any help?? Thanks.

Unless it is a local code, 6-outlet power strips are not required anywhere in the NEC.

It may be part of the state or local code. It is not a part of the national code.

Thank you for the replies! I didn't think it was a requirement.
