It may not be a National standard, but I know in many states you won't find ANY new houses built with that wiring. I doubt that insurance can even be gotten for a home with that wire, here it ALL had to be replaced because of fire potential,as the connection would loosen from heat expansion ,the heat created form the loose connections caused too many fires and is no longer accepted.I'll post what year that was when I locate my electrical code book.
