SMDA Scheme Scope Review Consultation

As a result of the BEIS recommendations, SEC MP 111 (SMDA Budget Amendments) was raised and implemented on 22nd January 2021. Feedback from the consultation expressed a need for the scope of the SMDA scheme to be reviewed and as such the SMDA Scheme have developed a consultation which can be found here.

The consultation contains four questions seeking the views on:

  • Proposed changes to the scope of testing suggested by Network Operators for an Electricity Smart Meter Equipment (ESME), as detailed in Annex B;
  • Communications Hubs testing;
  • Interest in add-on validation services provided by the SMDA Test House;
  • Whether further changes to the scope of the SMDA scheme are required and if so, what these changes should be and the benefit that they would bring.

Members are requested to respond to the consultation by submitting their responses by email to by 5pm Friday 1st October 2021. It’s vital that we receive your response so that the views of SMDA members can be fully considered.

Kind regards,

Kunal Sharma, Head of SMDA Scheme
