    You seem to have a misspelling in your title. Please edit. Also add details about run length, etc.

  • Do different countries have safer or less safe ratings for how much current a particular gauge of wire can carry?

  • No @fred_dot_u, different countries have different codes. Commented Feb 22, 2017 at 19:01

    @fred_dot_u I don't think the question can be answered without knowing the country and its codes. Wire will actually carry more than it's typically rated to carry. Insulatation types and availability also vary by country.

This question has been answered for a 60' distance on the DIY Stack Exchange and provides additional references for longer or shorter runs.

I suggest that the spelling error is the keyboard proximity of the letters C and V and a missing R, indicating that the OP wishes to carry 100 amp service.

  • Why the downvote?

    Shrug, Diy has a stealth downvoter of late. It may be because the linked queston doesn't appear at first glance to apply. I see where it does. Commented Feb 22, 2017 at 21:16
  • The down vote may have been because this question should have been flagged as a dupe of the link in the answer instead of repeating the answer.
