Applicable electrical codes and standards in a specific project is subject to Client choice, geographical location. For example, a new chemical plant in South East Asia will likely to implement IEC set of standards. At the same time, big-names Client also introduce their own set of standards.

Below is two most known Client standards:

In a project, the normal order of precedence or priority is as below:

  • Local Rules and Regulations
  • Client Standards
  • International standards (IEC or IEEE etc.)
