Formal title: Registration of UMSO’s and MA’s in SMRS

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


The purpose of this Change Proposal (CP) is to amend the validation rules when registering an Unmetered Supplies Operator (UMSO) or Meter Administrator (MA) in Supplier Meter Registration Agent (SMRA).
This would be beneficial as there are currently operational issues appointing an UMSO in a Grid Supply Point (GSP) Group where there is no longer a Non Half Hourly (NHH) Meter Operator Agent (MOA) which has the same ID as the UMSO operating in that area.
There is also currently some confusion regarding the Half Hourly (HH) appointment for UMS, whether to appoint the MA or the UMSO in the MOA field.


CP1267 was raised on 27 November 2008. CP1267 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00650. Following comments received via CPC00650, CP1267 was updated to version 2.0, which provides a more robust solution.  The SVG approved CP1267 v1.0 on 29 September 2009 for inclusion in the November 2010 Release, and rejected CP1367 v2.0. This CP was approved as part of the November 2010 BSC Release.
