IT notices: BSC Central Systems on 15-16 June 2019

We will be carrying out maintenance on BSC Central Systems from 23:00 (BST) 15 June 2019 to 05:00 (BST) 16 June 2019. This could result in temporary issues with connectivity.

How will I be affected?

Elexon anticipates little or no impact on the BSC Parties however in some cases, users may notice intermittent service in particular with applications where they have persistent connections, including Balancing Mechanism Reporting Service (BMRS), Elexon Portal and Energy Contract Volume Aggregation Agent (ECVAA) web service.

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 High Grade Service will not be impacted by this maintenance.

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) as early as possible prior to Submission Deadline.

We will perform system checks following completion of the work.

Do I need to take any further action?
