Backboxes For Cameras Or Not?

In reading through IPVM article, the necessity is vague. I was hoping someone in the IPVM forum would be able to point me to the National Electric Code indicating the need for a backbox or acceptance of not using one.

There is a bit of a discussion between the physical security team (PSPs) and the telecom team (RCDDs) and neither can reference a code/ standard/ or industry best practice document supporting their point of view.

I haven't a horse in this race, just trying to provide assistance and point to a credible reference.

Thanks,

Bobby
