Drop Ceilings and Flexible Cords

"Drop Ceilings and Flexible Cords"

This is a 19 minute video by the people that write books on understanding the NEC Code.

'NEC 2014 - Equipment for General Use Article 400 - Flexible Cords and Flexible Cables'

Interesting. So a power supply cable CAN be run through drop ceilings and wall cavities?

I have the feeling that every AHJ in North America would disagree with him. And, it seems that Mike Holt would disagree with himself as recently as last year.

I think it will take several years for this to come around to common practice, unless it's emphasized in the '2014 Changes to the NEC' publications.

Don't be so sure about that. Your local AHJ will likely tell you otherwise, and that is what counts. Mike Holt is a real student of the NEC, but he has made mistakes before. And this is a 180 degree shift in what he has been saying about it for years. Note that some of the others in the video weren't so sure he was right. And Holt admits he hasn't talked to anybody in the know about it. Note that he passes over Table 400.4 which calls out common types that are specifically included and the part of the code that says other types have to be investigated.
