I am using 20 amp breaker. My starting point is a 20 amp GFCI outlet.

I have it daisy chained to four 15 amp outlets. Is allowed by code?

  • that is assuming the circuit is wired with #12 and not #14 make sure to check the wire size before proceeding. Commented Dec 16, 2015 at 0:48

Yes, this is specifically allowed by code (NEC).

A 20A general use circuit can supply 15A or 20A receptacles.
