The presented article introduces an issue of data processing in the Smart Metering from the life cycle analysis persepctive. The life cycle of data has been identified and formalized; based on the results, the methodology for control and usage of the data in the Smart Metering area has been proposed. The methodology has been verified in three chosen pilot projects realized by a company owning licence for electric power distribution in the Czech Republic. On the grounds of verification, the fundamental areas that seem to be critical for effective usage of Smart Metering and AMM in distribution system are formulated.
