Stark Receives Accreditation for ESTA's New Code of Practice

Stark, a leading provider of smart metering services, is one of only four companies to receive accreditation for the new ESTA code of practice for gas data collection, known as ASPCoP

Horley, UK (PRWEB) 26 January, 2010 -- Stark Click this one of only four companies, to date, to receive accreditation for the new ESTA code of practice for gas data collection, known as ASPCoP (Automatic Meter Reading Service Providers Code of Practice).

According to ESTA, ASPCoP defines the operations, standards and methods by which metered gas consumption data is read and supplied to customers and energy suppliers.

By providing a regularised system, it ensures that customers have assurance about the installation and data accuracy, as well as the service levels they will receive from ASPs accredited under ASPCoP.

Stark's Click this link. managing director, Howard Stark, said: “The code of practice is voluntary and we were one of the first to apply because we knew we were already compliant. Over the past five years of gas AMR installations, we have proven that 'doing it right’ is the only successful and cost-effective way to work.”

Customers who choose an accredited ASP, such as Stark, for their gas AMR will benefit in three ways:

1.   Safety: installations will be undertaken by competent, well trained people, who understand and know how to identify potential hazards and who operate with safety in mind.
2.   Security: customers have the peace of mind of knowing that the devices are safe, are compliant with all relevant legislation, and have been installed appropriately.
3.   Accurate bills: one aim of the code of practice is to agree and implement a common data format, so that ASPCoPs can forward the meter data to suppliers for billing purposes. This means customers will be billed for their gas usage on real reads rather than on estimates.

Howard Stark explained how the new code of practice also benefits the industry: “The CoP ensures that we remain responsible for our devices for their lifetime - as other parties may need to connect to them in the future - and that we dispose of old devices responsibly.’’
