About Modification P404

After investigation, the Performance Assurance Framework Review identified that any amendments or changes to the SAD would require a Change Proposal.

P404 aims to move Balancing and Settlement Code Procedure BSCP537:

  • Appendices 1 – ‘Self Assessment Document’
  • Appendices 2 – ‘Testing Requirements’
  • Appendices 3 – ‘Guidance Notes on completing the SAD’ 

to a new Category 3 BSC Configurable Item.

This will facilitate quicker change to the Self Assessment Document (SAD) and its supporting documentation.

These documents will be migrated to a new Category 3 BSC Configurable item, to be placed under the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) ownership.

This change will make the documents a lot more flexible with an annual review. Any suggested changes to these items can be directly reviewed by the PAB at any time.
