Accurate data collection and secure data transfer are a must for the smart meter market. Smart metering solutions need to be METAS certified (METAS Zertifizierung) in Switzerland since 2019.
CCLab has become one of the leading accredited electric meter testing laboratories in cybersecurity evaluations of smart metering solutionsfor the energy industry. Among others we have great experience in data security evaluations in Switzerland under the METAS certification scheme.
According to the Electricity Supply Ordinance (Stromversorgungsverordnung), Switzerland has taken a big step forward by standardizing the requirements for Smart Metering Environments.
Thanks to thorough data security evaluation processes, METAS certificates are issued based on independent third party evaluation done by accredited Laboratories.
Keep your solution up to date regarding smart meter security risk and data security vulnerabilities.
CCLab has been involved in the preparation of procedures and security functionalities while supporting Swissmig community since the beginning, hence our continuous experience to deliver smart meter security evaluations and METAS certs professionally and quickly. We have pre-evaluated and certified a number of Head-End-Systems, Gateways and Smart Meters (IMS | Intelligent Measurement Devices | intelligenten Messsysteme)
