Recessed lighting question

Post by Dave83 » Mon Apr 17, 2017 3:59 pm

Hello everyone. I'm in the process of wiring my basement and I'm using these thin led potlights from lowes that come with the wiring box separate from the light fixture. So my question is this.
Do I connect my romex to the housing prior to the rough in inspection or do I just leave the wire hanging from the ceiling? Not sure what the inspector will look for. I'm in Canada so it would be under the Canadian code

You should be fine to have it connected at inspection. Typically many times a person may have a few temp. lights connected at inspection time as well so this would be no different IMO.

The inspector 'may' want to see the wiring done at the driver. As long as that is accessible at inspection, you should be good.
