IT Notices: Planned Outage on the BMRS

There will be a planned outage on the Balancing Mechanism Reporting System (BMRS) from 18:57 (BST) on Wednesday 30 September to 08:00 (BST) Thursday 1 October 2020.

The scheduled outage is required for technology maintenance of components within the BMRS application.

During this period of downtime, the BMRS will not be available; the following data will not be published via the website:

  • APIs
  • Data Push Service
  • European Transparency Regulation (ETR) data

Although the BMRS will not be available, the Elexon Portal POST API interface for submitting REMIT files to BMRS will continue to operate. BSC Parties can continue using the POST API to submit REMIT data which will be published on the BMRS website upon completion of the outage.

How will I be affected?

You do not need to take any specific action and we will perform system checks following completion of the work. The BMRS will start processing the backlog during the end of the outage period and we expect the BMRS website and APIs will be fully updated by 08:00 (BST) on 1 October 2020.
