Formal title: Inconsistency between the BSC and BSCP535

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


There is an inconsistency, which has been identified during the February 2004 Panel meeting (Panel 72) between the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) and BSCP535 ‘Technical Assurance’. Currently the BSC states in section J1. 4. 2(e) that the Performance Assurance Board (PAB) is responsible for “the carrying out of those functions duties and responsibilities accorded to it in. . . BSCP535”. However, in BSCP535 the majority of functions have been assigned to BSCCo, in particular the with regards to publication of the results of Technical Assurance (TA) checks conducted on a Supplier Agent to the Supplier Agent’s Associated Suppliers. BSCP535 currently implies but does not explicitly state that the PAB can delegate its authority to publish the results of a TA check to associated Suppliers to BSCCo.
