P458 Report Phase Consultation
The purpose of this Modification is to address the need for personal information sharing in the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC), specifically in the context of the Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement (MHHS) testing. The current BSC General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and data protection provisions were not designed to allow the sharing of personal information, which has now become necessary for the planned MHHS testing.
Who will this impact?
All Parties that engage with MHHS Testing
What is proposed?
This Modification suggests amending BSC Section C ‘BSCCo and its Subsidiaries’ to add data processor and controller obligations to the BSC to provide a framework for handling, protecting, and sharing personal data, ensuring that the BSC aligns with current data handling practices. This includes maintaining and securing data records, reporting data breaches, and guaranteeing GDPR compliance, along with safeguarding data subjects’ rights.
