Does anyone know when they adopted that conduit bodies shall be supported 3 foot from the conduit body instead of 18 inches?

yes 3' your supporting actually rmc conduit,it should be supported 3' from any termination points,boxes,conduit bodies etc.
I know it's 3 foot, my boss was giving me grief saying it was suppose to be 18" until I showed it to him in the code. I was just wondering when it was changed, I think it was in the 96 cycle.
no idea,maybe its just a local code that inspector said one day and your boss just wanted to follow that rule.
