Tampering with a gas meter is illegal and a serious public safety concern. By tampering with a meter, people are not just putting their own safety at risk, but the safety of their families, neighbours and the general public. The consequences could be costly or even fatal.
It is illegal to interfere with a Gas Networks Ireland gas meter and it is also illegal to procure a third party to do so. Only Gas Networks Ireland representatives are authorised to work on natural gas meters.
Public safety is the main priority for Gas Networks Ireland. We are actively identifying suspected cases of tampering across the country.
