1.2 Mandatory Requirements

Meters and auxiliary devices that are to be used for billing purposes come within the purview of the Electricity and Gas Inspection Act. Responsibility for the administration of this Act is vested in Consumer and Corporate Affairs Canada.

Requirements for approval of meters to be used for revenue billing are contained in the document "Specifications for Approval of Type of Electricity Meters, Instrument Transformers and Auxiliary Devices" issued under the authority of the Director of Legal Metrology. Sections 1 to 13 of that document constitute an appendix to this Standard.
