List of all BSC Modifications
These pages list all Modifications issued since 2010. Modification are raised to introduce changes that would alter any part of the BSC or any CSDs or BSC Systems impacted by the proposed changes.
P382 – Amendments to the BSC in the event of no-deal Brexit
The Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) contains multiple references to European Union (EU) legislation and bodies. Additionally, it also contains text introduced as a result of implementing various EU legislation. Retaining these references and text following the United Kingdom’s (UK’s) withdrawal from the EU without a deal (‘no-deal Brexit’) would have meant that the BSC would have been technically inaccurate but would have remained operable because of the European Union Withdrawal Act 2018.
P381: Removal of Quarterly Reports
P381 proposes to remove Section C3.9.1 of the BSC in respect of ‘quarterly reports’.
P380 ‘Revision to Replacement Reserve Bid Data submission deadline requirements’
Modifying the P344 wording of BSC Section Q ‘Balancing Services Activities’ to ensure National Grid ESO’s continued compliance with the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) and the Replacement Reserve Implementation Framework (RRIF).

P369: National Grid Legal Separation
P369 proposes to modify the Balancing Settlement Code (BSC) to reflect the creation of a new National Grid Electricity System Operator (NGESO) that is legally separate from National Grid Electricity Transmission Limited (NGET).
P368: Section Z and PAF Procedures
P368 seeks to amend provisions in the timing and revision of the PAF Procedure documents in order to support the objectives of the Performance Assurance Framework (PAF) Review in delivering a more efficient and effective PAF.
P367: Removal of SBR and DSBR arrangements
P367 proposes to remove the Supplemental Balancing Reserve (SBR) and Demand Side Balancing Reserve (DSBR) arrangements from the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC).
P366 Change to Supplier Charge SP08a for hard-to-read sites
P366 proposed amending how Supplier Charge SP08a is applied to Non Half Hourly non-Domestic Meters that are hard-to-read (HTR). It is believed that applying Supplier Charge SP08a to HTR Metering Systems is anti-competitive and limits consumer choice.
P365: relates to the Retail Energy Code
P364: Clarifying requirements for registering and maintaining BM Units
P364 will clarify the requirements for configuring and registering Plant and Apparatus in Balancing Mechanism (BM) Units. Specifically where Parties seek to share responsibility for Imports and Export from the same Plant and Apparatus or via the same Boundary Point. It will also clarify the circumstances and requirements for maintaining BM Unit registration details and seeking to re-register BM Units when the configuration of Plant and Apparatus change.
