Formal title: Removal of requirement for Proving Test Out of Timescale Escalation Report

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


BSCP502, ‘Half Hourly Data Collection for SVA Metering Systems Registered in SMRS’, Section 4. 6. 4, ‘Reporting’, states that ‘If the Half Hourly Data Collector (HHDC) receives the Meter Technical Details (MTD), via receipt of the D0268 Half Hourly Meter Technical Details and knows that a proving test should have been performed based on the circumstances defined in Section 4. 6. , but no successful proving test has been initiated by the Meter Operation Agent (MOA) within the timescales in Section 4. 6. 5, the HHDC shall report this to the MOA, the Supplier and BSCCo. ‘ This is accomplished using the P0212 ‘Notification of Failure to Carry Out Proving Test’ flow. This obligation was incorporated to facilitate Supplementary Monitoring carried out by Elexon when BSCP514 was produced (via CP854 ‘Provision of a new Balancing and Settlement Code Procedure (BSCP) covering Meter Operator Agent processes for Supplier Volume Allocation (SVA) Metering Systems’). At that time there were issues surrounding MOAs initiating proving tests. CP1200 proposes to remove the requirement in BSCP502 and BSCP514 to send a P0212 data flow if no proving test has been initiated and to remove the P0212 from SVA Data Catalogue Volume 1.


CP1200 was raised on 4 May 2007. CP1200 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00604. CP1200 was presented to the SVG on 3 July 2007 for a decision on progression. The SVG approved CP1200 for inclusion in the November 2007 Release.
