IT notices: Scheduled maintenance to BSC Central Systems

We will be carrying out maintenance on the infrastructure that hosts the BSC Central Systems from 23:00 (GMT) on 23 November 2019 to 05:00 (GMT) on 24 November 2019. This could result in temporary issues with connectivity.

How will I be affected?

Elexon anticipates little or no impact on BSC Parties, however in some cases users may notice intermittent service, in particular with applications where they have persistent connections with BSC Services, including

  • Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service (BMRS).
  • Elexon Portal.
  • Energy Contract Volume Aggregation Agent (ECVAA).

In addition to this, there may also be a delay in receiving, loading and publishing data on the BMRS website as well as via the API and Data Push services. Users of the TIBCO service may also experience temporary disconnections of service or a delay in the publishing of TIBCO messages via their High Grade Communications Lines.

What do I need to do?

Due to intermittent access to FTP services, we request you to kindly submit Energy Contract Volume Notification (ECVN) and Metered Volume Reallocation Notification (MVRN) to ECVAA as early as possible prior to the Submission Deadline. We will perform system checks following completion of the work.
