CP1546 ‘Introducing DTC flows to transfer UMS Summary Inventories and Control files’
CP1546 intends to introduce two new mandatory dataflows to be sent over the Data Transfer Service (DTS). The two dataflows would be a combined Summary Inventory and Central Management System (CMS) Control File, sent from the UMSO to MA, and a UMS Response which would be sent from the MA to the UMSO to confirm successful processing or rejection.
BSCP520 requires the passing of Summary Inventories and Central Management System (CMS) Control Files by electronic, or by other agreed method. This process does not support efficient automation through the use of a data flow.
There is currently no method for automated communication of these files for existing Half Hourly Metering System Identifiers (MSIDs), and email is often used to transmit the files, this CP intends to align the HH process with NHH.
