With the introduction of complex new technologies come risks and challenges. UL has more than 10 years of experience in evaluating meters and their smart features—such as electronic measuring, and wireless or remote reporting and appliance controls—enabling us to guide our customers through those challenges. Around the world, we provide reliable certification services and share knowledge on current and emerging standards.
UL can help manufacturers gain access to the world’s markets, testing smart meters to the requirements of the United States, Asia, Australia, Europe and South Africa. Our extensive experience in smart-meter testing has earned UL major accreditations, including acceptance into the National Voluntary Laboratory Accreditation Program (NVLAP), the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) program (U.S.), the Australian Government National Measurement Institute Accreditation and IANZ accreditation (New Zealand). Our team includes leading engineers in this field who are deeply involved with the creation of new standards for smart-meter technology and actively contribute to smart-meter panels globally.
