Formal title: Changes to Meter Protocol Test Specification and the inclusion of BSCP601 appendices
It was brought to the attention of the ISG that the ‘specification for the Approval and Testing of Metering Equipment Protocol Testing’ document (an appendix to BSCP601 ‘Metering Protocol Approval and Compliance Testing’) does not contain any detailed requirements. The ISG requested that Elexon assess the document and report its findings. Applicants to the BSCP601 processes have no indication of the requirements for protocol approval. CP1202 Attachment A details the redlined solution which includes the addition of a sample test schedule and the addition of an explanation of protocol. Further changes have been made to address areas of duplication and redundancy where the Appendix currently deals with issues relating to compliance testing.
CP1202 was raised from DCP0007 ‘Changes to Meter Protocol Test Specification’. CP1202 was raised on 6 July 2007. CP1202 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00609 on 6 July 2007. CP1202 was presented to the ISG on 28 August 2007 for a decision on Progression. The ISG approved CP1202 for inclusion in the February 2008 Release. CP1202 was presented to the SVG on 4 September 2007 for a decision on Progression. The SVG approved CP1202 for inclusion in the February 2008 Release. CP1202 was implemented on 28 February 2008 as part of the February 2008 Release.
