of January 13, 2005 No. ZR-36

About the state engineering supervision in the field of power and in the sphere of energy consumption

(as amended on 21-12-2021)

Accepted by National Assembly of the Republic of Armenia on December 14, 2004

Article 1. Subject of regulation of the Law

This Law:

a) the relations connected with the organization and conducting technical checks on power stations of persons performing activities in the field of power industry of the Republic of Armenia for production of electrical and heat energy, transformation of electrical energy, transfer (transportation) and distribution of electrical, heat energy and natural gas, consumers of electrical, heat energy and natural gas in the technological and household purposes (further - consumers), and also checks at persons performing activities for operation and servicing of energy networks of consumption, task and frame of the state engineering supervision exercised by means of checks are governed;

b) competences of persons performing activities in the field of power and consumers, and also the authorized body exercising the state engineering supervision in the field of power and the sphere of energy consumption are established.

Article 2. The basic concepts used in the Law

In this Law the following basic concepts are used:

technical checks - the visual studying performed for the purpose of confirmation of conformity of the actual technical condition, the performed works on construction, reconstruction and installation and the project of power stations and also studying of documents on the testing and measurements confirming compliance of power stations to the regulations established by technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts;

the state engineering supervision - the process performed by the inspection body exercising control by means of checks in the cases provided by this Law which is directed to identification of violations of requirements of regulations of technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts in case of start of power stations, and also their operation, servicing and the happened accidents and to their elimination;

power stations - set of the electrical machines established by technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts, devices, pipelines, power lines, substations, gas, thermal regulators and distribution nodes and other equipment which are provided for production of electrical and heat energy, transformation of electrical energy, transfer (transportation), distribution and consumption of electrical, heat energy and natural gas;

the reconstructed power station - the operating power station where as a result of installation and installation of additional electric equipment and (or) dismantle or replacement of node of the power station there was need for change of technical data sheet, specifications, the project;

the conclusion about start - the document confirming compliance of power stations to regulations of technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts which gives the inspection body exercising the state engineering supervision and which confirms readiness of power stations of person performing activities in the field of power or the consumer to start at the moment;

accident - violation of normal operation of power stations, including with damnification of life of people, to property and the environment. Classification of accidents is established by the Government of the Republic of Armenia.

Operation of this Law extends to persons performing activities in the field of power industry of the Republic of Armenia and consumers.

Article 4. Tasks of state policy of the state engineering supervision in the field of power and in the sphere of energy consumption

In the field of power and in the sphere of energy consumption enters tasks of state policy of the state engineering supervision:

a) ensuring compliance with regulations of safety of life of the people, property and the environment established by technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts;

b) ensuring availability and safety of the systems entering the field of power.

Article 5. The body exercising the state engineering supervision

The state engineering supervision in the field of power and in the sphere of energy consumption performs the inspection body exercising control (further - inspection body), within the competence established by the Law.

Article 6. Functions of inspection body

1. Inspection body:

a) carries out technical inspections on power stations of persons performing activities in the field of power and consumers, but is not more often than once a year:

- in electric utility system - on power stations of 110 kV and above, in gas supply system - average and the high pressure of gas for the purpose of maintenance of criteria of reliability and safety of systems;

- in electric utility systems up to 110 kV, in systems of heat supply installed capacity above 5,8 of MW and gas - low pressure at persons performing activities in the field of power - for the purpose of ensuring fulfillment of requirements, the established parts 2 and 3 of article 8 of this Law, and also annual analysis of accidents, the regulations established by technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts for human life, property and the environment together with persons exercising operation and control of electroinstallations on analysis results, the applications which are carried out as a result of studying received from citizens, legal entities, the written data received from bodies of the state and local self-government;

b) in case of detection of violations of requirements of technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts by results of technical checks of power stations of the legal entities performing activities in the field of power and consumers, constitutes acts orders, controls accomplishment of the requirements specified in it and makes the decision on application of the measures of responsibility established by this Law;

c) based on technical checks, according to the procedure, established by the Government of the Republic of Armenia, draws the conclusion about start of again under construction and reconstructed electric utility systems of 6 kV and above, heat supplies installed capacity of 5,8 of MW, and also gas average and high pressure, having resolved their start;

d) conducts statistics of violations of regulations of technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts and carries out their analysis;

e) represents offers on adoption of new technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts or on modification and amendments to the existing technical regulations and other regulatory legal acts.
