    Is an electric panel allowed to be located behind a door (when the door is in the open position)? There would be adequate clear working space in front of the panel when the door is in the closed position.

    l would say, it depends, nothing prohibits it but Article 110.26 does say that the work space shall be clear at all times.

    In reality, it is better than having junk or shelving in front of it.....
