Formal title: Proving Test Permissible Software
CP1439 proposes to amend BSCP514 to allow the Half Hourly Meter Operator Agent (HHMOA) to also use other BSCP601 ‘Metering Protocol Approval and Compliance Testing’ approved software during the proving test process.
This software undergoes the protocol approval process within BSCP601 to ensure that it acts in the same way as the manufacturer software when dialling Meters and can be tasked with dialling Meters in batches rather than individually. This will allow batches of proving tests to be undertaken more quickly and therefore facilitate the efficient implementation of P272 ‘Mandatory Half Hourly Settlement for Profile Classes 5-8’, which will require significant volumes of Change of Measurement Class (CoMC).
CP1439 was raised by SmartestEnergy on 10 April 2015 and was presented to the SVG as part of the New CP Assessment paper at its meeting on 28 April 2015. It was issued for CP Consultation on 5 May 2015, with responses due by 29 May 2015. CP1439 was approved by the SVG at its meeting on 4 August 2015 and implemented on 5 November 2015 as part of the November 2015 Release.
