BSC Changes impacting a Virtual Lead Party
This page shows which Modifications and Change Proposals have been identified as impacting a Virtual Lead Party. 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.
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.
P438 ‘Amending the BSC to address sanction orders’
This Modification would allow Elexon to seamlessly give effect to sanctions orders.
CP1562 ‘Amendments to the approved IDD changes for P375’
CP1562 seeks to update the New Electricity Trading Arrangement (NETA) Interface Definition Documents(IDD) Part 1 and 2 that were approved under P375, to provide clarity to the relevant Parties that make use of the document.
CP1556 ‘Improving the CVA Qualification Testing experience for VLPs and AMVLPs’
CP1556 looks to update BSCP70 ‘CVA Qualification Testing for Parties and Party Agents’ and the Communication Requirements Document to include a test request process and a list of P-flows for VLPs and AMVLPs.
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).
