Formal title: Changes to accommodate EU metering standards

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


ince the introduction of the Measuring Instruments Directive (MID), certain MID approved meters have not been considered compliant with certain Codes of Practice (CoP) under the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) for Half Hourly Settlement (HHS), even though they meet the technical minimum standard. This is due to the wording of the current CoPs. CP1349 proposes to amend CoPs 2, 3, and 5 so that they include MID accuracy classes as well as those currently specified. This will allow Meters which carry MID approvals (and therefore comply with its standards) to also be used for HHS purposes where applicable.


CP1349 was raised and issued for industry impact assessment via CPC00698 on 03/06/2011 with responses received on 30/06/2011. It was approved by the ISG on 26/08/2011 and the SVG on 30/08/2011, for inclusion in the February 2012 Release.
