CP1247 – BMRS Amendments to Report Interconnector

Formal title: BMRS Amendments to Report Interconnector

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


The BMRS has a System Warning page, which displays messages sent to BMRS by National Grid. At market start-up  it was envisaged that this page would be used primarily for System Warnings as defined in the Grid Code. However, National Grid also use it for other purposes. In particular, they currently send two messages per day relating to SO-SO Interconnector Trades (on the French and Moyle Interconnectors). There is concern that these SO-SO Interconnector messages may mask more critical messages. The proposed solution is to create a new page that will only display SO-SO Interconnector messages, leaving the existing System Warning page to display those messages that are not SO-SO Interconnector messages. This will add clarity so messages which may be more important to the market can be clearly seen.


CP1247 was raised on 12 May 2008. CP1247 was issued for Impact Assessment via CPC00634, with responses returned on 22 May 2008. CP1247 was presented to the ISG on 27 May 2008 for a decision on progression. The ISG approved CP1247 for inclusion in the November 2008 Release.
