    Does a GFCI exist that is rated CO/ALR? I have not found one, and I suppose there is a reason most, if not all, are rated copper only???

    Possibly, since aluminum romex/aromored cable were made prior to GFCI's invention (and no longer made) the need for a CO/ALR rating was not warranted? :confused:

    I had to think about this for a minute.

    We were using GFCI protection at the same time as Al romex, but it was GFCI breakers.....and we called them GFI's

    Yep, now that you mention it, I think you're correct.
