In March 2011, the UK government told energy suppliers to develop and follow a licence-backed code of practice governing the installation of smart meters. The Smart Meter Installation Code of Practice (SMICoP) was approved by Ofgem in April 2013.

The main objectives of the Smart Meter Installation Code of Practice (SMICoP) are:

  • To make sure you receive a high standard of service throughout the installation process
  • That you know how to use and benefit from the smart metering equipment installed by
  • To┬áprovide you with a better understanding of how to improve the energy efficiency of your home.
