It's generally every three years.

A new edition does not automatically come into force as soon as it is
published though. The state/county/city in question specifies which
edition of the NEC is to be used, so an old edition is still
applicable until they amend their rules to refer to the new one.

I understand that there are some places still using the 1999, and maybe
even the 1996 code.
