    1. In this Chapter, unless the context indicates otherwise, “Code” means the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, Twenty-third edition, CSA C22.1-15, published by CSA Group, as well as any subsequent amendments that may be published by that organization.

      That Code is incorporated by reference into this Chapter subject to the amendments provided for in section 5.05.

If those versions are not published at the same time, the 6-month period runs from the date of publication of the last version.

      The provisions of the third paragraph do not apply to errata, which take effect as soon as they are published by CSA Group.
