PESO, which stands for Petroleum and Explosives Safety Organisation, is an organisation launched for the purpose of Auto-Renewal of licences in Form G (Licence to dispense compressed natural gas in a CNG dispensing station as automotive fuel) under Gas Cylinders Rules, 2004 with effect from 21st September 2016.
The explosives, Petroleum storage tanks, and other dangerous products earlier used to fall under CCOE and require a licence such as Explosive licence for storage of diesel, but was then changed from CCOE to PESO in 2010. It was done with the aim of simplifying administration and the increasing specialisation of the authority. The CCoE is still at the top and is called the Chief Inspector of Explosives. In addition, CCoE is also the formal title of the Indian auditors as well as all directors within the organisation who are responsible for issuing certificates & licences, hence the term “CCoE certification” is still widely used.
For the safety purpose, a detailed list of products needing certification has been made which mentions the products that are made compulsory to be manufactured only after having the PESO licence.This list also includes electrical equipment that needs to withstand highly corrosive saltwater, very hot environments or purely mechanical components if they are used in hazardous areas in India.In brief, there is a general principle that can be followed for explosion-proof products - All products that need either IECEx or ATEX certification also need PESO.
One more thing to focus on is that the products that fall under PESO are generally highly hazardous and dangerous which necessitate the companies to have their products certified after proper due diligence.
