CP1536 ‘Use of DTC data flow D0379 for submission of unmetered Half Hourly data’
Formal title: CP1536: Use of DTC data flow D0379 for submission of unmetered Half Hourly data
BSCP520 ‘Unmetered Supplies Registered in SMRS’ permits the use of ‘Electronic or other agreed method’ for the sending of unmetered Half Hourly (HH) data from Meter Administrators (MAs) to Half Hourly Data Collectors (HHDCs) via the Data Transfer Catalogue (DTC) D0003 data flow ‘Half Hourly Advances’. However, MAs are not currently able to send D0003 flows across the Data Transfer Network (DTN) to send unmetered HH data, as ‘MA’ is not specified as a ‘Data Transfer Participant’ in Annex A of the DTC. As a result, MAs currently send the unmetered HH data to HHDC via email.
The proposed CP1536 solution will amend BSCP520 to allow MAs to send unmetered HH data across the DTN using the existing DTC data flow D0379 – Half Hourly Advances UTC.
Listen to our podcast about amending BSCP520 (Unmetered Supplies Registered in SMRS) to allow Meter Administrators to send unmetered half hourly data.
