UL 943 – What does the standard say? 

  •  All devices manufactured after June 2015 have to have an automatic ground fault self-testing feature.  If a problem is detected, power will be cut, or an indication must be given provided.
  •  New GFCIs must have a Line-Load Reversal Function – If the GFCI is miswired (Line to Load terminals), it will not reset or power until it is properly wired.

Other less common facts of the change:

  •  Any products manufactured prior to this new standard are grandfathered to the old standard.  The pre-standard parts maybe sold, or installed with no restrictions or phase out.  
  •  Due to the new requirements, the price of the new receptacles can run up to 40% higher than the current self-test models
  •  Sunrise Electric can help you meet these requirements with Leviton and Pass & Seymour devices
