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.
The CACoP Forum announced the launch of its new website on 26 October 2021. The CACoP Website is the new home of all information related to the CACoP. You will be able to find latest versions of all our products in one central place, where previously these were stored across various code websites.
Information on the new website includes:
- The Code Administration Code of Practice – the set of principles that the Code Administrators agree to uphold
- The Central Modifications Register – the consolidated record of all live industry code changes
- The Horizon Scanner – a forward look at what could impact our industry codes in the medium/long-term
- CACoP issued guidance – any information that we have published to support parties navigating our codes
- The latest and historic versions of the CACoP Newsletter – the quarterly publication that keeps interested parties updated on CACoP matters
The CACoP Website is also home to a brand new industry codes meeting calendar. Here you can access information about when meetings are happening across the industry, filter by individual codes, and navigate to individual meeting pages on specific code websites through integrated links. It includes meeting information for all 10 CACoP Codes.
By visiting the CACoP Newsletter page, you can also sign up to receive direct notification from the CACoP Forum each time the latest newsletter is released.
The CACoP welcomes your feedback and ideas around what we could add to the website to provide further value in the future.

Code of Conduct
This Code of Conduct aims to provide some rules of engagement and behaviour in Workgroups, helping to create a level playing field and respectful environment to enable Workgroup members to voice their opinions and work collaboratively together to achieve their set tasks.
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.
