I propose to take Questions Nos. 520 and 523 together.
I refer to the reply to Question Nos. 6, 7, 17 and 30 of 12 June 2013 which sets out the timeframe for the rollout of water metering. Water meters used for domestic billing must comply with the EU Measuring Instrument Directive which sets standards of accuracy. This Directive is implemented in Ireland by the Legal Metrology (European Conformity Assessment of Measuring Instruments) Regulations 2007. The Legal Metrology Service of the National Standards Authority of Ireland is the statutory body responsible for regulating and supervising weights and measures, including meters, in Ireland.
