quote:
(A) Dwelling Units. All 125-volt, single-phase, 15- and 20-ampere receptacles installed in the locations specified in (1) through (8) shall have ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel.

quote:
(6) Kitchens — where the receptacles are installed to serve the countertop surfaces
