Meters can be removed either when a supply point is permanently disconnected/deregistered or if a customer wishes to change to an unmetered tariff.
If a removed meter is associated with an existing meter network, then all association will be removed prior to the final meter read.
A removed meter will either be related to a supply point being permanently disconnected from the network or will signal a shift from being based on volumes to one based on measurements. In this instance, a customer may have requested a disconnection.
Obligations under the market codes
