Sub-panel in a commercial bathroom

11240 10
A friend of mine say's that you can put a sub-panel in a commercial bathroom (retail store) as long as the main disconnect is somewhere else.

Is this true? is there a NEC code that supports this?

Thanks! :blink:

I will post in this thread what the outcome of this project is.

He is going to put the Sub-panel in the bathroom, oops, let's call it a lavatory since there is no tub or shower.

The job is in northern California. I will post if the inspector signs off on it.
