The collection of Security Characteristics for Smart Meters, and the associated Build Standard

Products successfully assessed against these SCs (and the aligned supporting Build Standard) have an extended certification validity period of six years.  This is due to the specific requirements of the Smart Metering Implementation programme, and is limited to the four SCs published here. There is no intent, implied or otherwise, that any product evaluated against other SCs will have an extension to the certificate validity period, which remains at two years.

The Smart Meters Security Characteristics are available from the Download tab.  The collection comprises:

  • Gas Smart Metering equipment
  • Electricity Smart Metering
  • Communications Hub
  • HAN Connected Auxiliary Load Control Switch
