Electricity meters, current transformers and voltage transformers.
The Swedish Board for Accreditation and Conformity Assessment’s Regulations on measuring systems for measuring transmitted electricity
Regulations on measuring systems for measuring transmitted electricity and regulations on periodic inspection of active electrical energy meters are already in place today (STAFS 2009:8 and STAFS 2009:9). These have previously been notified as technical rules. The draft regulations include the following amendments to the existing provisions.
The draft relates to inspection of in-service measuring systems and in some cases to inspection when measuring systems are being put into service. Such inspection shall be carried out by an inspection body accredited for the task under Regulation (EC) No 765/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council. The draft regulations also contain certain requirements for measuring systems and there is no mutual recognition clause for these requirements. This is because some electricity meters are covered by the Measuring Instruments Directive (2014/32/EU) and the draft does not contain specific requirements for other electricity meters and transformers. Instead, the requirements for other electricity meters and transformers relate to the fact that the measuring system included in these electricity meters and transformers must, as a whole, meet certain measurement accuracy requirements. Any meters and transformers may be used as long as the required measurement accuracy is met. There are also requirements for recording measured values and adaptation. Any measuring system that meets the requirements for recording measured values and adaptation is accepted.
The draft does not contain Swedish national provisions in relation to the Measuring Instruments Directive (Directive 2014/32/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonisation of the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of measuring instruments) and does not include any requirements that are more stringent or more comprehensive than those laid down in that Directive.
