Formal title: Removal of PSL130 ‘Half Hourly Data Collection’ following the creation of a generic non functional PSL via CP1182

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


The Code Subsidiary Document (CSD) review highlighted a large amount of duplication between the requirements in the Party Service Lines (PSLs) and the corresponding Balancing and Settlement Code Procedures (BSCPs). A single generic PSL is being created under CP1182 ‘Creation of a generic Party Service Line’ which will contain participants’ non-functional requirements. Following on from CP1182, CP1214 has been raised to remove PSL130 ‘Half Hourly Data Collection’ and include the functional requirements in BSCP502 ‘Half Hourly Data Collection for SVA Metering Systems Registered in SMRS’ and BSCP550 ‘Shared SVA Meter Arrangement of Half Hourly Import and Export Active Energy’. The redlined changes to BSCP502 are included as DCP0011 Attachment A and the redlined changes to BSCP550 are included as Attachment B. The removal of the duplication between PSL130 and BSCP502 and BSCP550 will mean that Half Hourly Data Collectors (HHDCs) will only have to look in the relevant BSCP to find the functional requirements relating to their role, which may be particularly useful to new entrants. This change will also reduce the cost associated with preparing and maintaining numerous and duplicated PSLs.


CP1214 was raised from DCP0011 Removal of PSL 130 (‘Half Hourly Data Collection’) following the creation of a generic non functional PSL via CP1182′. CP1214 was raised on 7 September 2007. CP1214 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00615. CP1214 was presented to the SVG (SVG81/01) for decision on Progression on 30 October 2007. The SVG approved CP1214 for inclusion in the February2008 Release. CP1214 was implemented on 28 February 2008 as part of the February 2008 Release.
