Formal title: Clarify requirements on Meter Administrators relating to Equivalent Meters

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


Elexon raised CP1291 on behalf of the Meter Administrator Expert Group (MAEG). The CP recommends changes to BSCP520 to: establish Population, Amendment and reporting of data within an Equivalent Meter (EM); clarify Fault Reporting; and include a requirement for a Technical Specification for EM Calculations. The inclusion of a Specification for EM calculations will assist the Auditor in assessing the MA action in executing its obligations under BSCP520. It will also ensure that MAs are clear on their obligations. The CP also proposes to clarify the MA responsibilities when managing faults, which is particularly important for new entrants, who may not be familiar with the arrangements


CP1291 was raised on 01 May 2009. CP1291 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00661. CP1291 was presented to the SVG on 30 June 2009 for a decision on progression. The SVG approved CP1291and it was implemented as part of the November 2009 Release.
