BSCP68: Transfer of Registration of Metering Systems between CMRS and SMRS
The purpose and scope of this BSCP is to enable Third Party Generators to centrally register Third Party Generating Plant (typically embedded generators) such that the Exports of such Third Party Generating Plant can be traded in the Balancing Mechanism without having to go through a Licensed Supplier.
This requires the registration of Metering Systems to be transferred between SVA (utilising the Supplier Meter Registration Service – SMRS) and CRA (utilising the Central Meter Registration Service – CMRS) and for checks to be made to ensure that energy is accounted for in one system but not in both Registration systems.
Known as “Registration Transfers”. For Settlement purposes this means that each part (i.e. the Import or the Export) of the Third Party Generating Plant is accounted for in Central Volume Allocation or Supplier Volume Allocation but not both for any particular Settlement Day.
