Sure ... they have not changed.

That depends on WHERE you are planning on using them. And yes, they have changed. If you are planning on installing them on a new project, they have to be "Tamper-Resistant". If they are to be used outside, they have to be "Weather-Resistant" as well as "Tamper-Resistant" GFCI receptacle. If they are going in an existing building, to be used as replacements, they can be used as long as they are grounded and you are replacing a grounding receptacle. Good luck.

You mean utility plugs or lamp socket outlets? Different rules for each.
