The government's Instituto Peruano del Deporte (Peruvian Institute for Sports) resolved in November 1997 to accept the formation of the Comisión Deportiva Nacional de Rugby — an officially recognized rugby commission — which is the first step to becoming a recognized federation.

A year after this meeting in October 1997, the Union Peruana de Rugby was formally accepted as a member of the Confederación Sudamericana de Rugby (CONSUR) at the meeting held in Mendoza, Argentina. Hereafter Peru has attended all meetings. In the January meeting in Mar del Plata the same year, Mr. Carlos Tozzi of the IRB was contacted. It is worth mentioning that at this meeting, Peru's intervention allows the presence of Colombia in the meeting.

At the Montevideo meeting, as previously agreed, Peru presented Mr. Tozzi and CONSUR members a letter requesting incorporation in the IRB. The letter was faxed to the IRB on April 13, 2000. Also in 2002, the Comision Deportiva Nacional de Rugby, was recognized as Federacion Peruana de Rugby by the Instituto Peruano del Deporte .
