NIST PAP 11, Task 6 Coordinate standards activities for electrical interconnection and safety standards for chargers and

discharging, as well as a weights and standards certification and seal for charging and discharging. Summary of PEV Codes and Standards status and efforts All PEV charging station installations are subject to national, State and local building and electrical codes. These codes ensure the safety, accessibility, and equipment maintenance concerns of PEV equipment users, property managers, utilities, and maintenance workers. These rules and regulations fall into two categories: electrical code requirements and building code requirements. Electrical code requirements cover the safe installation, operation, and long-term maintenance of the electrical equipment at the PEV charging site. Building code requirements govern the physical construction and placement of the PEV charging station(s) and cover such aspects as accessibility of the equipment, stall dimensions, building materials, and placement on the property. A thorough review of all the associated PEV standards and codes have been completed and their status investigated The following sections list the existing and current American standards in place and/or being developed.
