NEC 250.50 has an exception for existing concrete-encased (reinforcing) electrodes. Grounding of existing reinforcing is now required if the reinforcing can only be exposed by disturbing the concrete.

Is there a code requirement that says that rebar in a slab or footing has to be grounded?  I have an electrical engineer telling me NEC says so.
