To ensure the correct operation of the system is not enough to add the partial certifications of each of the elements that make up the system.The experiences with leading utilities demonstrate that the certification process must cover the legal requirements but also must ensure the interoperability of the equipment, the correct dimensioning of the communication channels and the correct management of the obtained data. These points were not necessary in the past but they are essential today.
