Electrical Panelboard Working Room Clearnace

110.26 Spaces About Electrical Equipment. Access and working space shall be provided and maintained about all electrical equipment to permit ready and safe operation and maintenance of such equipment.

I'd also focus on the words, "and maintained."

Ultimately, it's an interpretation. Another very talkative inspector once infamously interpreted this section to mean that if an electrical panel were located in a garage, then you couldn't park a car there because it would violate 110.26. Common sense does play a role here.
