BSC Changes impacting the National Electricity Transmission System Operator
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting the National Electricity Transmission System Operator (NETSO). Please note that the assessment of where impacts may affect certain roles within the electricity market may be amended during the course of the Change process.
P463 ‘Introduce a Standard Change Process’
To introduce a new change process – a ‘Standard Change’ process – into the BSC arrangements that would allow for certain, low risk, predictable and repeatable pre-authorised changes to be implemented without following the existing Change Proposal or Modification procedures.

P454 ‘Removal of BSC obligations to provide BMRS Data via TIBCO and the High Grade Service’
This Modification would remove the existing requirement within BSC Section V ‘Reporting’ for the Balancing Mechanism Reporting Agent (BMRA) to provide BMR Service (BMRS) data via the legacy High Grade Service, otherwise referred to as the TIBCO service.
P454 is a recommendation from BSC Issue 95, which considered the impacts associated with maintaining the legacy TIBCO service.
CP1593 ‘New Interconnector Fuel Type Category: Greenlink’
Changes are needed to the Insights Solution to ensure data relating to the new Greenlink Interconnector is provided to market participants alongside existing data relating to Settlement arrangements in the Great Britain (GB) electricity market.
P466 ‘BSC Section N Modernisation’
This Modification seeks to update BSC Section N ‘Clearing Invoicing and Payment’ to support the effective running of the Funds Administration Agent (FAA). The Modification will align the BSC with Elexon’s updated financial systems and modern banking practices to increase the efficiency of service provided to industry.
P451 ‘Updating BSC Black Start provisions and compensation arrangements’
P451 seeks to facilitate the implementation of NGESO’s new approach to Black Start, termed System Restoration. In doing so, it proposes to update all BSC references to “Black Start” to “System Restoration”, and enable contracted Restoration Service Providers who are non-BSC parties to claim BSC Black Start compensation.
