Help UL develop utility meter standard for Canada


November 25, 2014 – UL (Underwriters Laboratories) announced today that “Canadian stakeholders”—with the assistance of UL technical experts—are set to begin working on an electric utility meter standard for Canada.

The new standard will cover the electrical safety of electric utility meters, says UL, adding that, to expedite the process, UL 2735 “Standard for Electric Utility Meters” will be used as the basis for a Canadian standard. (UL 2735 is already used in both Canada and the States for testing and verification, notes UL.)

“We are pleased that we can deliver on our commitment to meet the standards needs of Canadians,” said Robert A. Williams, vice-president, Standards, UL Inc. “The ability to use the existing UL standard as a base document will assist a more efficient and cost-effective process in meeting those needs.”
