This is worded funny. You are asking if 20A "outlets" are required. I don't know of any local amendments, but 20A receptacles devices are not required. As long as there is at least one duplex on the circuit you can use 15A receptacles, but they are required to be on a 20A circuit.
New member and all, looks like it might be a little cute play with words.
Any where that the NEC is adopted into the state or local codes a 20 amp outlet is required in a bathroom
Sorry, all of you are correct - the wording could have been much better, but you figured out what I meant (at midnight).
I have a proposed 12 gauge bathroom circuit with 4 duplex receptacles in series. The first receptacle in the circuit is GFCI, and the remaining 3 are standard receptacles. From you answers I gather the circuit must be connected to a 20 amp breaker, and all 4 receptacles can be 15 amp. However, one statement was made that I need clarified: "NC as well as the rest of the nation allows 15 amp outlets in a bathroom. Any where that the NEC is adopted into the state or local codes a 20 amp outlet is required in a bathroom." With regards to my circuit, does this imply that one of the 4 receptacles, most likely the GFCI receptacle, be 20 amp with the remaining 3 15 amp?
Also, NC recently adopted the use of Arc-Fault breakers in all living areas. I presume that I should use a 20 Amp AFCI breaker in my proposed circuit?
This is awkward, but...
