IMO A GEC by definition is a conductor attaching the electric service to a grounding electrode. Even in a sub panel why would you not want one installed if it is a separate structure, just don't attach it to the neutral buss? Maybe I am misinterpreting here but I can always learn something new.

Yes its a separate structure served by more than a single circuit (and not a mwbc).

3 wire feeder. #8. Rigid metal conduit between panels. No water pipe between the two. Cant think off top of head on what else code describes for separate structure.

Right now the neutral bus is not bonded. Will be adding equip ground bus and leaving the neutral buss unbonded.

Haha, I don't have the newest book but I think my older book doesn't say anything about combined raceways. That only smaller than #6 needs to be protected by emt, pvc, armor or rigid. And that metal needs to be bonded on both ends.... sure I am missing something, that's off the top of the head.

Which leads me to think... why not bond it in the 1900 box and in the subpanel and call it good?
