Hi all!!

What is the correct position of the symbols of receptacles on walls?
See attached drawing.

There is a rule about this?
In some Latin American countries, the placement of the receptacles is like option 1, as shown.

When I worked for an electrical contractor, we always orientated our receptacles toward the wall, such as your option 2.
