|Agreement for Electrical Connections to Gas Meters
The AMO is pleased to announce that following extensive consultation the above document is now available for adoption by meter asset managers and parties that wish to connect AMR equipment to gas meters. The template is available from the link. This is a standard, customisable template that we recommend as the basis for bi-lateral agreements between parties when equipment is to be connected to gas meters. The arrangements align with the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM) technical standard GM7 and also the AMR service providers' code of practice (ASPCoP).
We hope that companies will move quickly to adopt the new agreement as this will improve the regime for granting and maintaining the relationship between connected parties. This becomes increasingly important as the requirements for energy management and access to metering information will continue to grow. This new form agreement with simplified text can also supersede existing Meter Pulse Utilisation contracts.
The AMO has agreed to undertake a review of operation of the new agreements once they are operations and we hope that you will be able to provide feedback in due course.
May I also take this opportunity to thank the many organisations and individuals who have worked to bring this new agreement to fruition. If you have any questions please contact me (details below) or Tom Chevalier, Consultant to the AMO, via firstname.lastname@example.org
