Code wise absolutely not.
No, no requirement like that. Maybe not a bad idea, but no such thing in the NEC.If that 110 J-Box contains a rec within 3 feet of said faucet than the device either needs GFCI protection or a GFCI receptecial, no?
Again, to the letter of the code there is NO such requirement, unless of course this is a laundry sink.Only need gfci if within 6 feet from a sink. If the faucet in the closet over top of a sink? Is the junction box just a junction box or is it an outlet?
I know it's often fruitless to ask why the NEC is written a certian way. So after thinking about this.....I guess you can't really drop a hair dryer into a running fauset in a closet of some sort.Again, to the letter of the code there is NO such requirement, unless of course this is a laundry sink.
The code has yet to put a blanket "six foot" rule on all sinks. They still name 'em one by one.
The 2008 changes to GFCI protection in dwelling units is the removal of Exceptions #1 and #2 to 210.8(A)(2) and the removal of exceptions #1 and #2 to 210.8(A)(5).Anyone know the 2008 for SFD/MFD?
