Requirements for couplings are detailed in UL Standard for Conduit, Tubing, and Cable Fittings, UL 514B, and compliance needs to be confirmed and reports updated. 
6.1.3 A fitting for cable must have an end stop or throat of an appropriate size to allow passage of cable conductors. The conductors of the largest and smallest cable size will be evaluated. This revision is to address concerns expressed that the conductors of the cable will not fit through the fitting end stop or throat when assembled in the field 
6.3.1 Transition couplings are intended for connection of one or more metal sheathed cables or flexible metal conduits to one or more non-flexible metallic raceways. Requirements for couplings are detailed in the UL Standard for Conduit, Tubing, and Cable Fittings, UL 514B, and compliance needs to be confirmed and reports updated.
