Information bulletin: New requirements for the approval and use of loss compensation metering

In March 2014, Measurement Canada (MC) and the Canadian Electrical Association (CEA) formed the Electricity Loss Compensation Joint Working Group, which developed type approval and use requirements for loss compensation metering. The final documents were posted for public consultation on Measurement Canada's website from February 10, to March 31, 2016.

Changes have been made to the specifications and policies for loss compensation metering in consideration of comments received during consultation. The following documents have now been authorized and published on Measurement Canada's website:

In addition to the above, new installation and use specifications that address the establishment of loss compensation values outside the meter have been incorporated within the requirements and policies of an upcoming new document entitled S-E-11—Specifications for the Installation and Use of Approved and Verified Electricity Meter Used to Establish Processed Legal Units of Measure. These specifications, which remain under review, were developed by the MC and CEA's Complex Metering Implementation Joint Working Group. Mandatory implementation of the requirements and policies of S-E-11 will be communicated in accordance with the policies of bulletin E-31 mentioned above.
