Summary

Where Metering Equipment has been installed by a non-BSC Party, the BSC places obligations on the  Registrant to ensure that its MOA performs the required Commissioning of all Metering Equipment in  accordance with CoP4, which includes Commissioning and testing of measurement transformers (current transformers (CTs) and voltage transformers (VTs)).

However, there is no guidance regarding situations where measurement transformers installed by a non-BSC Party are later adopted by a BSC Party. 

CP1528 seeks to amend CoP4 to clarify that a BSC Party will be responsible for the Commissioning of any measurement transformers that the BSC Party has agreed to adopt.
