2) At this time the OSHPD(California Health Care Facilites) Ratings expired as of Dec. 31, 2019, but Schneider Electric is in the process of having it renewed.

3) If the Job started before Dec. 31 , 2019 then to obtain the OSHPD label kit, order part number S1B54772. This will apply even if the switches are ordered after Dec. 31, 2019, but the job started before that date
EXCEPTIONS: 1000VDC PV Switches (REHU prefix), Fiberglass reinforced polyester NEMA 4X Switches (DF or DX suffix) and Type 7/9 switches have not been qualified for seismic applications.
