IGEM Standards

All IGEM Standards are issued to industry and other stakeholders for review and comment prior to publication.

IGEM/GM/PRS/40 "Medium pressure meter installation kits for flow rates not exceeding 6 cubic metres per hour".

This Specification covers purchasing requirements for medium pressure (MP) meter installation kits.

This draft for comment has been prepared by an IGEM Panel chaired by Mark Burrows and is submitted to industry for its consideration and comment. 

Background

British Gas and subsequently National Grid Metering (NGM) developed a series of specifications for key metering components based on its own product requirements. These documents were made available to meter installers and purchasers under the title of PRS 'e' documents. Originally these Specifications were made available through Advantica, as they were known at the time.

NGM transferred the ownership of these documents to IGEM to make them available to the wider industry. It is some years since the original 'e' documents were updated and these have been withdrawn.

The comment period ends 20/07/2018. Any comments should be input into the comment form and sent to peter@igem.org.uk

IGEM/GM/PRS/41 "Low pressure installation kits".

This Specification provides the purchasing requirements for:

  • low pressure domestic meter installation kits
  • for use with 2nd family gases
  • at flow rates not exceeding 6 m3 h-1, and
  • with a nominal metering pressure of 21 mbar.

IGEM/GM/PRS/50 Meter and converter serial numbering and model names

This draft for comment has been prepared by an IGEM Panel chaired by Mark Burrows and is submitted to industry for its consideration and comment.

This is a new industry purchasing Specification, which has been prepared on the request of the MAMCoP Board.

Background

This Specification defines the requirements for gas meter and converter serial numbering and model names. It sets out the requirements for gas meters and volume converters with flow rates not exceeding 99,999 cubic meters per hour.

It sets out a serial number format that shall be used by the manufacturers of gas meters and converters, with the intention of harmonising as many meter asset and billing systems as possible.

It includes the requirement for manufacturers to obtain a single letter designation to be included in the serial number formats, which will be allocated by UK Metering Forum as currently they do for the electricity meter industry
