3 NATIONAL CODE OF ELECTRICITY & STANDARDS PERUMinistryof Energy and MinesApproves the standards of electrical facilities, with the purpose of safeguarding the security of people, the facilities and the other installations.Approves the National Code of Electricity DGE’ s standards and DGH’s standards.(Antecedent)The CEC is the antecedent or the reference of the National Code of Electricity
4 TECHNICAL REGULATIONS & PERUVIAN STANDARDS Peruvian Standards (NTP-IEC)The NTPs-IEC are approved by INDECOPI.Currently, the Technical Regulations and the National Code of Electricity do mandatories the Peruvian Standards.Technical RegulationNTPPeruvianStandardsMANDATORYNational Code of Electricity
5 TECHNICAL REGULATIONS PERUMinistryof ProductionPromotes the Standardization and implementation of Standards among the manufacturers, in order to improve their competitiveness.Makes, approves and supervises the application of the Technical Regulations.Evaluates and registers the Conformity Assessment Bodies, in order to ensure the compliance of the Technical Regulations.Ministryof EconomyPERUThe Ministry of Economy is responsible for promulgating the Technical Regulations.
6 TECHNICAL REGULATION OF ELECTRICAL WIRES AND CABLES Art. 2°.- Obligatory CharacterIt establishes the requirements and minimum technical specifications that must fulfill the electrical wires and cables.( )Art. 5° Requirements of Labeled andSamplingSampling of each batchDetermination of the batchAcceptance of the batchArt. 7° Conformity assessmentConformity CertificateCertificate Stamp or Conformit MarkCame into effect on July, 2006
7 NATIONAL CODE OF ELECTRICITY - USE GENERALUse of Approved Materials and EquipmentThe materials and equipment used in electrical installations, must count with approval by the competent Authority, and to be of the kind, type and nominal value that correspond to the specific intention (purpose) for which it must be utilized.Installations Execution QualityAll electrical installation must be made by qualified and authorized personnel, using certified products and applying the Code rules (regulations), in such a way that the quality is acceptable.
8 NATIONAL CODE OF ELECTRICITY - USE Section 080: Protection and ControlScopeThis Section covers the protection and control for circuits and electrical apparatuses.Note 1: It must be complied with the correspondingPeruvian Standards:NTP-IECNTP-IECNTPNTP-IEC
10 PERUVIAN STANDARDS - NGV NTPService station of natural gas vehicularThe entire electrical system of the dispenser shall be intrinsically safe or explosion proof according to NFPA 70.All electrical installations usually located where flammable gases may be present, such as the area of dispensers, NGV compressor and storage, must conform to the requirements of the National Electrical Code (Peruvian), NFPA 70 or NFPA 52.
11 NATIONAL CODE OF ELECTRICITY - USE 110 Hazardous locationsClassificationClass I locations are those in which flammable gases or vapours are or may be present in the air in quantities sufficient to produce explosive gas atmospheresClass II locations are those which are hazardous because of the presence of combustible(Antecedent)Class III locations are those which are hazardous because of the presence of easily ignitable

19 SUMMARYSeveral IEC standards are adopted by Peruvian Standards, but we will start the adoption of TC-31 standards by 2014.The hazardous locations classification is regulated by the Electrical Code. Classe I (Zones 0,1,2), Classe II and III (Divisions 1, 2).Currently, there are not both the certification of electrical products and the conformity assessment procedures; however, usually it requires the certification in the country of origin.The regulations on Explosive Atmospheres, cover in general way but not sistematically, the entire life cycle of plants containing hazardous areas; by means of compliance National Electrical Code and the regulations of the Hydrocarbons General Directorate.
