Default Need advice about Cat 6 running parallel to unshielded Romex...

Anybody have any code or experiential advice about running Cat 6 Ethernet parallel to unshielded Romex?

The parallel run will be about 16 ft.

I've seen a lot of opinion but little code on such a thing.

In one UK post, citing code said to keep the runs separated by at least 2".

An opinion said they should each be metal shielded and no less than 12".

Quite a bit of variation there.

Thanks...
