I assume they mean if you have an outlet, this can be a jb, what must be done to that jb for safety? 314.25

I don't know what the aec I assume you mean NEC

The nec has no limit however one can argue that a 20 amp circuit in a commercial area is limited to 13 receptacles.

IMO, very bad question but IMO the answer is - No limit

Section 210.8 has most of the gfci requirements

AEC is listed on the web when I searched, I thought the same thing.
I sort of feel bad for him the questions are bad with not all of the information, only sort of.
He could of said something like " I am finding conflicting things on Residential vs Commercial. NOT

AEC=Automotive Electronics Council


I will agree that the questions are pretty vague, but since the AEC is mentioned I would "assume" the subject relates to electric vehicle chargers and the GFCI receptacle requirements.

I also found AEC to stand for several other electrical type entities, make them spell it out.
