Are YOU Specifying The Right Electricity Meter Boxes?

The newly published BS 8567 specifies requirements for outdoor electricity meter boxes/cupboards.

It is intended to accommodate the electricity supply industry's service termination and metering equipment, in particular cut-outs, single and polyphase meters, isolators and communication equipment. It can also be applicable for build-in and surface-mounted meter cupboards. The standard also specifies requirements for the design, material and composition of the meter board.

The standard is of particular relevance to power distribution businesses, meter operators, electricity suppliers, meter box manufacturers and house builders/developers.
