Formal title: Review of the CSD Architectural Principles Document

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


The Code Subsidiary Document (CSD) Architectural Principles Document has not undergone substantial revision since it was published as part of the BSC Baseline in November 2006. We noted that the document contains a number of inaccuracies, as well as out of date information which makes it difficult for the Imbalance Settlement Group (ISG) and Supplier Volume Allocation Group (SVG) to use when approving updates to CSDs. CP1322 proposes to make changes to the CSD Architectural Principles Document, so that it is of sufficient quality to provide a basis for the production, review and approval of future changes to CSDs.


CP1322 was raised on 08 January 2010. CP1322 was issued for Industry Impact Assessment as part of CPC00674.  CP1322 was taken to ISG109 on 25/02/2010 and SVG109 on 02/03/2010 for decision where it was endorsed by both Committees. The BSC Panel approved CP1322 on 11/03/2010, with a 5 Working Day implementation date (18 March 2010).
