P431 Report Phase Consultation
As a result of the UK leaving the EU, Great Britain (GB) is no longer part of the Internal Energy Market and updates are required to the BSC to ensure that the legal text appropriately reflects these changes.
Who will this impact?
The United Kingdom (UK) left the European Union (EU) on 31 January 2020, but the vast majority of energy-related issues remained unaffected until the end of the Implementation Period on 31 December 2020.
P431 will not directly impact BSC Parties as these updates are only required to reflect changes that have already taken effect by the UK leaving the EU.
None of the changes P431 proposes have an impact on the operation of the BSC – they are, essentially, administrative changes only.
Due to the very minor impacts associated with this change, and the prioritisation of other Modifications in the change pipeline, this Modification has been raised at this stage rather than immediately after the UK withdrawal from the EU.
