Formal title: Consumption not 'E' flagged following proving test failure

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


BSCP502 ‘Half Hourly Data Collection for SVA Metering Systems Registered in SMRS’, section 4. 6. 6 ‘Failed Proving Test’ requires that if a proving test has failed, collected Metered Data will be flagged as ‘E’ (estimated) until a successful proving test is completed. Meanwhile, BSCP502 section 4. 6. 7 ‘Non-Completion of Proving Test’ allows Half Hourly Data Collectors (HHDCs) to treat data from a Metering System for which a proving test is outstanding as ‘A’ (Actual) flagged for the submission of data into Settlement. In situations where proving tests are delayed this can lead to a large amount of unproven data being entered into Settlement, which then becomes indistinguishable from proven data that is also ‘A’ flagged.
