Unless meeting this section’s exception, receptacle outlets must be located above, but not more than 20 inches (500 mm) above, the countertop. The maximum height for countertop receptacles was changed in the 2002 NEC. Prior to the new edition, the maximum height was 18 inches (458 mm) above the countertop.
