Question NMD90 in conduit

This is my first time using this forum so here it goes.

A buddy of mine had an electrician do some work for his shop and I did check the electrician out and he is licensed. I checked him at the OCAT site.
Well any way he has run NMD90 in EMT conduit i have searched table 19 and appendix B section 12-900 .
I see where you can run armoured cable in conduit. I have never run NMD90 in conduit It.
So the question is simple is there a specific code that does not allow NMD90 in conduit or is it more like it does not specify directly but you can't or can you?

Thanks in advance Rob P

If its a complete conduit system it is not allowed (table19) NMD is not listed for use in a raceway. If the conduit is just a stub piece for mechanical protection it is allowed.
