    That might fall under ADA reach rules, but as long as there is more than one or the outlet is for a purpose, then all bets are off.

    Jack a ROP reworded it a bit:

    Recommendation: Revise text to read as follows:
    (D) Bathrooms. In dwelling units, at least one receptacle outlet shall be installed in bathrooms within 900 mm (3 ft) of the outside edge of each basin. The receptacle outlet shall be located on a wall or partition that is adjacent to the basin or basin countertop, located on the countertop, or installed on the side or face of the basin cabinet. In no case shall the receptacle be located not more than 300 mm (12 in.) below the countertop top of the basin. Receptacle outlet assemblies listed for the application shall be permitted to be installed in the countertop.

    The only other restriction for bathrooms:

    (C) Bathtub and Shower Space. Receptacles shall not be installed within or directly over a bathtub or shower stall.
