Health Canada periodically reviews its standards to keep in line with changes in the analysis of scientific knowledge. A public consultation was held about the emission levels authorized by Safety Code 6. Emission levels authorized by Safety Code 6 concern all equipment that uses radiofrequencies, such as communication towers, baby monitors and meters.
The emission levels of next-generation meters are 55,000 times lower than the current standard in Safety Code 6. Even if Health Canada lowers the authorized emission levels, the radiofrequencies emitted by next-generation meters would still remain well under the limits set by Health Canada. Rest assured that next-generation meters do not pose a health hazard.
