BSC Changes impacting a SVA Meter Operator Agent
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting a SVA Meter Operator Agent. 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.
P432 ‘Half Hourly Settlement for CT Advanced Metering Systems’
This Modification proposes to align the BSC definition of an Advanced Meter with that in the Standard License Conditions (SLC) and to set explicit Half Hourly (HH) Settlement obligations for Current Transformer (CT) Advanced Meters ahead of the migration to Market-wide Half-Hourly Settlement (MHHS).
P375 ‘Settlement of Secondary BM Units using metering behind the site Boundary Point’
P375 will allow Metering Equipment situated ‘behind’ the defined Boundary Point to be used for Settlement purposes in place of the Boundary Point Meter. Primarily, this will allow balancing-related services on-site from smaller assets to be separated from current imbalance-related activities, more accurately reflecting the balancing-energy volumes provided by the Balancing Service Provider (BSP).
P437 ‘Allowing non-BSC Parties to request Metering Dispensations’
This Modification proposes to introduce a provision in Section L ‘Metering’ to allow the relevant Meter Operator Agent to apply for Metering Dispensations on behalf of a non-BSC Party.
CP1567 ‘New BSC Procedure (BSCP) for Assurance Information Requests (AIRs)’
The AIR is a Performance Assurance Technique (PAT) which was introduced in May 2022. Currently there is no related BSCP for an AIR, therefore when issuing an AIR, there is no written obligation on Parties to adhere to the request.
