Codes of Practice

Codes of Practice (CoPs) detail the technical requirements for Metering Systems. These versions are not time limited in the same way as other documents. When Metering Equipment is first registered in Settlement, it must comply with the requirements which are set out in the relevant Code of Practice in place at that time.

Code of Practice 1: The Metering of Circuits with a Rated Capacity Exceeding 100MVA for Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice states the practices that shall be employed, and the facilities that shall be provided for the measurement and recording of the quantities required for Settlement purposes on each circuit where the rated capacity exceeds 100MVA.

Code of Practice 5: The Metering of Energy Transfers with Max Demand of up to (and including) 1MW for Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice states the practices that shall be employed, and the facilities that shall be provided for the measurement and recording of the quantities required for Settlement purposes. This Code of Practice specifically applies to the Metering Equipment to be installed on each circuit where the Maximum Demand of the electricity being transferred does not exceed 1MW.

Code of Practice 6: The Metering of Energy Imports via Low Voltage Circuits Fused at 100 AMPS or Less per Phase for Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice states the practices that shall be employed, and the facilities that shall be provided for the measurement and recording of the quantities required for Settlement purposes. This Code of Practice specifically applies to Direct Connected Metering Equipment to be installed for the metering of energy imports via low voltage circuits fused at 100 AMPS or less per phase.

Code of Practice 7: The Metering of Energy Imports via Low Voltage Circuits Fused at 100 AMPS or Less per Phase for Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice states the practices that shall be employed, and the facilities that shall be provided for the measurement, recording and collection of the quantities required for Settlement purposes. This Code of Practice specifically applies to Metering and Data Collection Systems (MDCS) to be installed for the metering of energy imports via low voltage circuits fused at 100 AMPS or less per phase.

Code of Practice 8: The Metering of Import Active Energy via Low Voltage Circuits for Non-Half Hourly Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice states the practices that shall be employed and the facilities that shall be provided for the measurement and recording of the quantities required for Settlement purposes. This Code of Practice specifically applies to directly connected and transformer operated Metering Equipment to be installed for the metering of import active energy via low voltage circuits for non-half hourly settlement purposes.

Code of Practice 9: The Metering of Import and Export Active Energy via Low Voltage Circuits for Non-Half Hourly Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice only applies to whole current and current transformer operated Metering Equipment for Import and Export Active Energy measured in kWh. No provision is made for the measurement of Reactive or Apparent Energy or any Maximum Demand.

Code of Practice 10: The Metering of Energy via Low Voltage Circuits for Settlement Purposes

This Code of Practice specifically applies to metering of energy via low voltage circuits for Settlement purposes. Metering Equipment compliant with this Code of Practice can be traded either Half Hourly where the Metering Systems are not 100kW Metering Systems (Measurement Class E, F or G) or Non-Half Hourly.
