To be compliant with the method set out in Health Canada's Safety Code for the Construction Industry 6, tests done to measure the power of the radiofrequency emissions of next-generation meters were performed at a distance of 1 m. At that distance, the exposure levels of next-generation meters are 55,000 times lower than Health Canada limits. The meters are reliable, safe and pose no health hazard. This is the same position taken by Health Canada and the Ministère de la Santé et des Services sociaux.
