Formal title: Housekeeping Change to BSCP515 – Licensed Distribution

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


On page 11 of BSCP515, step 3. 3. 4 has the WHEN action of ‘Within 5WD  of 3. 3. 2’. This should say ‘Within 5WD of 3. 3. 3’. In addition footnote 4, also on page 11, refers to step 3. 3. 4. This should be 3. 3. 3. We implemented CP1199 ‘Changes to BSCP515 ‘Licensed Distribution’ to remove non functional information and add clarity’ in February 2008; however, the agreed redlined text contained this error. CP1199 introduced several changes to the steps of 3. 3, and moved step 3. 3. 2 to 3. 3. 3 but the reference in 3. 3. 4 was not updated. CP1199 also moved step 3. 3. 3 to 3. 3. 4, but didn’t update the reference in footnote 4. The CP proposes to correct a change that was clearly not intended by CP1199 by; Updating the WHEN action in step 3. 3. 4 to say ‘Within 5WD of 3. 3. 3’; and Update footnote 4 to say: ‘Note that a Supplier must have appointed an MOA for that Metering System before step 3. 3. 3 can occur. ‘.


Elexon raised CP1279 on 04 February 2009. The SVG agreed that it be treated as a housekeeping CP on 03 February 2009. Therefore it does not required Industry Impact Assessment, and it will be presented for decision at the SVG meeting on 03 March 2009. CP1279 was presented to the SVG on 03 March 2009 for decision on progression. The SVG approved CP1279 for inclusion in the June 2009 Release. CP1279 was implemented on 25 June 2009 as part of the June 2009 Release.
