Im looking for information on Domestic Meterbox standards. If no standard does anyone no what fire rating Plastic boxes should have.

There used to be an NZS dstandard which covered weatherproof boxes for revenue meters and also for boxes for outside use for switchboards and deemed to be fit for purpose.

To the best of my knowledge the NZS standard has been long superseded and withdrawn.

A ruling made many years ago by Energy Safety was if a 5 ply base was included in the switchboard or revenue meter box if was NOT fit for purpose due to the fire risk the 5 ply panel brings.
