I am going to Korea to install some machinery and I am wondering if they have any codes over there? I will be installing then according to the NEC because I can't go wrong with that but... you never know!

All industrialised countries have codes.

The bad news is that you can go very wrong with the NEC. If you don't believe me, I'm sure there are half a dozen people here who can back me up. The good news is that you were wise enough to ask.

You will have to check what the Korean code says and also who is allowed to install what. The fact that you intend to follow the NEC indicates that this is an electrical installation rather than just an installation of a machine. I is likely that only Korean electricians are allowed to carry out electrical work in Korea without supervision.

And where can you find anything about eletrical codes in Korea??? And yes the machinery is electrical. It's 2-3000 amp rectifiers and 1-6000 amp for electro-polishing. I have installed them here in California but not over there. Thanks for the comments but still not the aswer.

I've been unable to find the name of the electrical code. But the people at Korea electrical safety corporation should know.

Have you checked that you don't need to certify your product?

The Korean equivalent to UL, except that it appears to be mandatory.
