Switches in ganged box Q

Is it Code to install light switches from different circuits in the same box or are there some restrictions when devices from different circuits are in the same box?
Thank you

Thank you
Yes you can install switches from different circuits. The main rules are that all grounds from both circuits must be tied together and connected to the box if the box is metal. The neutrals must kept separate. Only neutrals on the same circuit may be joined.
