Formal title: Exclusion of certain Site Visit Check Codes (SVCC) within the Long Term Vacant (LTV) site process

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


A site will drop out of the LTV process if the Supplier has received a data flow with the Site Visit Check Code (SVCC) data item populated with a code other than 02 (Site not occupied). However, there are certain other codes that a Supplier may receive that do not indicate that the site is no longer vacant. Currently if one of the codes is received, the site must be removed from the LTV process – even though the site will still be vacant. CP1304 recommends changes to BSCP504 ‘Non Half Hourly Data Collection for SVA Metering Systems Registered in SMRS’ to prevent certain SVCCs from causing a site from falling out of the LTV process.


CP1304 was raised on 31 July 2009 and was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00667. This CP was approved by the SVG on 29/09/2009 and it was implemented as part of the February 2010 Release.
