Code Administration Code of Practice forum
The Code Administration Code of Practice (CACoP) Forum is a place for the energy Code Administrators to collaborate, share best practice and make navigation of energy Codes easier for all industry participants.
The Forum originally arose as a means to facilitate the identification and co-ordination of cross-Code impacts arising from modifications and change proposals, whether through developing multi-Code solutions holistically or ensuring consequential changes to other Codes are identified and progressed.
CACoP engagement event
ELEXON hosted a engagement event on 16 July 2019 about CACoP for energy industry stakeholders. The event was designed to explain the benefit of key tools that CACoP provides (the Horizon Scan and Central Modification register).
It was also an opportunity for stakeholders to hear about what CACoP has delivered so far, and help to shape future work.
The event also included a presentation by Ofgem on the review of the energy codes landscape.
News stories featured in the newsletter relate to:
- The CACoP Forward Work Plan
- Faster, more reliable switching
- The Supplier of Last Resort Process
- Erroneous Transfer
- The Supply Point Administration Agreement (SPAA) and Uniform Network Code (UNC) Joint Workgroup
The Code Administrators maintain a horizon scan of all potential impacts on the Electricity and Gas Industries. To the best of our knowledge, content is true at the time of completion and is for indicative planning purposes only.

About the code
The Code Administration Code of Practice sets out principles for the administrators of the industry codes that underpin the electricity and gas wholesale and retail markets.
It is designed to facilitate convergence and transparency in code modification processes and help protect the interests of small market participants and consumers.
Improving co-ordination between code administrators is important especially as significant changes are being made to code rules to help the development of the smarter electricity system.
