Default UPC Appliance Connector Length?

We have adopted the 2006 Uniform Plumbing code here and for the life of me, I cannot find the section that describes the maximum length of an appliance connector. In the 1997 code, the only old code book I have, it was in section 1212.0 exception (1) for listed metal appliance connectors which were limited to (3) feet except dryers were allowed (6) foot connectors. I have been asked this question in a few tests I have had to take and everytime I have looked, I cannot find the restrictions for this in the 2006 code book.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks!

"PrecisionPlumbing 48" is the max"

According to what? Which code or section? The older UPC code always specified 3' max except for dryers which could be 6', but the 2006 UPC code book doesn't show anything.

Thanks for the reply
