Are there any health concerns with Automated Meter Readers?

This area is regulated by the UK Government. The meter radio transmitter is a European Commission-certified product, compliant with the European Union rules and requirements for the limits for public exposure to electromagnetic radiation (Directive 99/5/EC).

Installed Automated Meter Readers (AMRs) transmit signals well below the regulatory values; they can even be considered marginal when compared to other sources generated by the devices that surround us, such as mobile phones, microwaves and WiFi signals. In comparison, the signal emitted by an AMR is similar to that of a car key fob.
