CCA's additional safety measure

Copper-Clad Aluminum (CCA) is a conductor material that follows a strict ASTM material standard. To ensure safety, Copperweld petitioned the NEC (National Electrical Code) during the 2020 code-making cycle and proposed that an additional safety measure be put in place in the form of a listing for the CCA conductor material itself.
