The code is subject to the interpretation of the inspector.
Then I would have to ask Mr. Whitehead to show me in verse what he finds not to code.
Inspectors are NOT God and do not make the rules. They can also NOT simply interpret the rules to suit their own ideas and agendas. Or simply because "They don't like it". That one amazes me.
More folks need to question some of the misinterpretations of certain inspectors.

When I see something that is not actually code accurate, yet is written as if it were fact, I feel the need to state what the actual code is. I try to mention that what I write is according to the NEC, so if an area has not adopted it yet they can adjust the facts to what their area follows. An example is Canadian code. I try not to reply with code information since I do not know what is code accurate in Canada.

I see so many people on boards like this, most of whom are not even in the trade, who reply with erroneous information. I don't go to framing message boards and give advice on what size header to use over a garage door, nor do I go to plumbing boards and give advice on what size vent stack to use.

I served my time as a master electrician, now I'm doing other things. You are NOT the only electrician on the forum.

That's cool. How long were you in the trade?
I hope you are keeping up on current codes. It's a great career to fall back on if you need it.

You guys are screwing this guy up. You are not talking about "Tandem" breakers. Tandem breakers take up only one space, thus only one hot leg. They are two slim breakers that are half the size of regular breakers that take up the space of one single pole breaker. They are not "double pole" breakers like what you are describing to this gentleman.

The OP was not asking about tandem breakers. He asked a double pole breaker that was supplying a heater.
