Generate a random sample

The random sampling application generates one or more samples from an electricity or natural gas meter lot. Generate a random sample to:

  • verify or reverify electricity and natural gas meter lots

The application is intended for:

  • authorized service providers recognized to verify or reverify meters in the electricity or natural gas sector
  • electricity or natural gas utilities
  • Measurement Canada inspectors auditing an authorized service provider
