Version of section 2 from 2006-03-22 to 2014-07-31:

  •  (1) In these Regulations,

    absolute pressure scale

    absolute pressure scale means the pressure measuring scale the zero of which represents the pressure exerted by a total vacuum; (échelle de pression absolue)

    accreditation audit

    accreditation audit means an assessment of the facilities, procedures and capabilities of an applicant for accreditation as a meter verifier to ascertain whether the required standards of meter performance control can be met and maintained by the applicant; (vérification d’accréditation)

    Act

    Act means the Electricity and Gas Inspection Act; (Loi)

    average flowing gas temperature

    average flowing gas temperature means the time weighted or the volume weighted average of the temperatures of the gas flowing through a meter during the period a volume of gas is measured by the meter; (température moyenne d’écoulement du gaz)

    average meter pressure

    average meter pressure means the time weighted or the volume weighted average of the pressures exerted by the gas within a meter during the period a volume of gas is measured by the meter; (pression moyenne du compteur)

    electricity metering installation

    electricity metering installation means an installation that consists of more than one electricity meter installed at the same location and that is used for the purpose of obtaining the basis of a charge for electricity supplied to a purchaser; (installation de mesure de l’électricité)

    gas metering installation

    gas metering installation means an installation that consists of more than one gas meter installed at the same location and that is used for the purpose of obtaining the basis of a charge for gas supplied to a purchaser; (installation de mesure du gaz)

    gauge pressure scale

    gauge pressure scale means the pressure measuring scale the zero of which represents the pressure exerted by the earth’s atmosphere at the time and place the measurement is taken; (échelle de pression manométrique)

    measured atmospheric pressure

    measured atmospheric pressure means the time weighted or volume weighted average of the atmospheric pressures measured at the location of a meter during the period a volume of gas is measured by the meter; (pression atmosphérique mesurée)

    standard conditions

    standard conditions means standard temperature and standard pressure; (conditions normales)

    standard pressure

    standard pressure means

    • (a) in the International system of units, an absolute pressure equal to 101.325 kPa, and

    • (b) in the Imperial system of units,

      • (i) 14.73 psia, or

      • (ii) 30 in. of mercury at 32°F; (pression normale)

    standard temperature

    standard temperature means a temperature that is equal to

    • (a) 15°C in the International system of units, or

    • (b) 60°F in the Imperial system of units; (température normale)

    standard volume

    standard volume means a volume of gas expressed in units of either the cubic metre or the cubic foot at standard pressure and standard temperature as determined in accordance with section 35. (volume normal)

  • (2) Where a word or expression is used in these Regulations to describe a type of meter, a function or part of a meter or a measurement, that term shall have the meaning set out in the appropriate specifications, as amended from time to time, made available pursuant to sections 12, 18, 19, 44 and 45.
