How to have your compliant equipment listed on our website

The NSW Government has taken an open market approach to metering and floodplain harvesting measurement and encourages manufacturers and suppliers of metering equipment to supply equipment that complies with the NSW floodplain harvesting measurement framework.

The department’s Market Engagement Policy for Telemetry (PDF, 593.52 KB) describes how we will engage with providers of telemetry solutions that support the non-urban metering and floodplain harvesting measurement frameworks.

Storage sensors

If you supply a storage sensor and would like it [link to primary metering equipment page] listed on the department’s website [/link], it must be assessed for suitability. You must provide the following information to the department:

Please send this information to metering.reform@dpie.nsw.gov.au.

Local intelligence device for floodplain harvesting

A local intelligence device (LID) sends data securely from the meter to the NSW Government’s data acquisition service (DAS) and the landholder.

A LID must meet the technical specifications set out in the NSW Data Logging and Telemetry Specifications 2021 (PDF, 1,901 KB) for purposes of floodplain harvesting. These specifications define the requirements for ensuring satisfactory functionality, data integrity and security for local intelligence devices.

The department maintains a list of local intelligence devices that have been assessed as meeting the Minister’s specifications.

Point-of-take metering

If you are seeking to supply metering equipment for the point-of-intake method, you must follow the approval process of the non-urban metering framework. Meters that comply with the Australian Standards (AS4747) and local intelligence devices that meet the Minister’s specifications will be acceptable.

More information about what suppliers of non-urban metering equipment need to know.
