Electricity meters are regulated by specific legislation for the European market. The new smart meter with open meter technology complies with European Directive 2014/32 / EU,  which harmonises the laws of the Member States relating to the making available on the market of measuring instruments. It also complies with Royal Decree 244/2016, implementing the Metrology Act (Law 32/2014)  which establishes general rules for the organisation and execution of metering activity in Spain.

Electricity meters are inspected by the corresponding authorised bodies. The electricity meters of e-distribución have been certified by the Institute for Energy Technology (ITE).  Some certificates are specifically for the metering equipment (regardless of whether it is single or three-phase), while others are associated with the companies that assemble the meters and with the assembly procedures at their factories, guaranteeing the highest possible standards of quality throughout the manufacturing process.
