Formal title: Security Requirements for CoP10 Metering Equipment

Current Status

CPC Consultation
Committee Decision
Awaiting Implementation


CP1450 proposes to amend CoP10 Section 5.6 to state that Metering Equipment shall either comply with the Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specification (SMETS), and therefore the security requirements; or allow for at least the levels of access currently defined. This will remove a barrier to elective Half Hourly Settlement for domestic and small non-domestic Metering Systems. The change will ensure that Meters that comply with the SMETS will also meet the CoP10 security requirements.


CP1450 was raised by Elexon on 18 September 2015. The CP1450 Progression paper was presented to the SVG at its meeting on 29 September 2015. It was issued for CP Consultation on 5 October 2015, with responses due by 30 October 2015. CP1450 was approved by the SVG at its meeting on 1 December 2015 and implemented on 25 February 2016 as part of the February 2016 BSC Systems Release.
