Please refer to the following documents before answering the following questions:

All fields are required, unless specified otherwise.

Questionnaire
  1. 1) Are you seeking approval of the device with "traced update capability", i.e. with the ability to update legally relevant software of a device in service without triggering a reverification?
  2. 2) Are you seeking approval of the device as a "configurable device", i.e. with the ability to modify legally relevant parameters of a device in service without triggering a reverification?
  3. 3) Are you seeking approval of the device with the ability to update legally non-relevant software and/or parameters of a device in service without triggering a reverification, e.g. updating communication software?

Notes

  1. The requirements of S-EG-05 Specifications for the Approval of Software Controlled Electricity and Gas Metering Devices are applicable in all cases.
  2. If the answer to questions 1 and/or 2 is "Yes", then the device is also subject to the requirements of S-EG-06 Specifications Relating to Event Loggers for Electricity and Gas Metering Devices.
  3. Although the pattern approval assessment process will include validation on the basis of functional testing, documentation review will have a very significant role in the determination of compliance. In this regard, it is imperative that meter manufacturers / approval applicants pay particular attention to the Administrative Requirements of section 11.0 of S-EG-05. Approval applications with incomplete documentation or which do not include the required attestation statements will be considered insufficient for the purposes of pattern approval.
  4. To confirm the documentation requirements applicable to your particular device, please contact Joël Guindon, Gas Approvals Laboratory Manager, at joel.guindon@ic.gc.ca
