Wanted to avoid a splice in a run, so I stripped the romex where it entered the conduit. What code violation is this ?
It's actually considered a "damp" location. I'm talking about the NM being in conduit. Code considers the inside of conduit run outside a damp location. NM is not permitted in wet or damp locations.I'd say if it runs outside the apartment, it's in a wet location.
I agree with post #9, it's not an issue of "wet location" or "if you don't know" it's a code violation of 310.120(A) (2011) When the sheath is removed there are no markings on the individual conductors.So the only thing that makes this unsafe is that the wire is not marked ? If you don't know, you shouldn't be touching.

slabs or masonry in direct contact with the earth; in locations

as vehicle washing areas; and in unprotected locations exposed

What are they?Although we all know what those conductors are!
I believe the NEC considers the interior of an outdoor raceway, that is exposed to the weather, a wet location:It's actually considered a "damp" location. I'm talking about the NM being in conduit. Code considers the inside of conduit run outside a damp location. NM is not permitted in wet or damp locations.
That is the violation along with stripping the sheath because there are no markings on the conductors.
Although we all know what those conductors are!
As Pete says, I don't think there is any straight THHN anymore. And even though we all know the conductors in NM are probably THHN/THWN the fact that they are not marked leaves us where we are. The truth is that it helps the manufacturers sell more wire this way.Type Thhn is all that is used here for building wire. Size is very common to those who work with this daily.
