The Volcanological Observatory of the INGEMMET (OVI) is a goverment institution that has been operating since 2006, formally created on 21 March 2013 by National Supreme Decree.

The OVI belongs to the "Dirección de Geología Ambiental y Giesgo Geólogico" (DGAR) of the Institute Geológico Minero y Metalúrgico" (INGEMMET) and is ascribed to "Ministerio de Energía y Minas" of Peru.  It is a center of study to the Geological Survey of Perú:

The objectives of the OVI highlight the multidisciplinary methods of monitoring the 12 active volcanoes that exist in Perú (seismic, geochemical, geodetic and visuals). Information is centered on only three volcanoes: Sabancaya, Misti, and Ubinas (southern Perou).  The information is reported weekly to local authorities.
