NEC Article 90.1

Quote is for the NEC 2008 edition, same for the latest 2011 edition

Quote from Link provided.

NEC Article 90 draws boundaries around the National Electrical Code—boundaries many people fail to understand. For example, Article 90 has long made it clear the NEC is not intended as design specification or instruction manual. The National Electrical Code has one purpose only.

NEC 90.1 has four subdivisions:

(A) says the purpose of the NEC is the practical safeguarding of people and property "from hazards arising from the use of electricity."
(B) distinguishes from the adequacy concept (provisions necessary for safety) and other concepts. The Code is a minimum standard. Further effort may be required for an installation to be efficient, convenient, or adequate for good service or future expansion. This is a fundamental concept upon which many Code disagreements arise. The Code is not a target you’d like to hit. It is the minimum you can do.
(C) clearly states the Code is not intended to be a design specification or instruction manual.
