Supplier Volume Allocation Group (SVG)
Events relating to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) are changing on a daily basis. We took an early decision to base all of our staff at home as a means of continuing our service uninterrupted, and to help in efforts to stop the spread of the virus. Consequently, for the time being, we will no longer be hosting meetings at our London office, though we will continue to provide our services as normal.
Please read through our guidance with respect to forthcoming meetings which will be hosted remotely for the foreseeable future. Your meeting host will be in contact with you to ensure all necessary arrangements are in place to hold meetings virtually.
Clearly the specific advice we are referencing here may change so we ask all committee members and stakeholders to ensure they keep up to date on advice from the Government and we will also update our procedures, and notify you, as appropriate.

About the SVG
The SVG is responsible for overseeing the operation of the Supplier Volume Allocation processes and systems.
These processes include those associated with the SVA Agent, Supplier Agents and the Supplier Meter Registration Service.
The SVG meets monthly. Meetings are held in open session, with the exception of confidential or commercially sensitive items. Attendees can observe proceedings in open session, but cannot speak unless invited by the Chairman.
Applications to become an SVG Industry Member or Industry Alternate are welcome from anyone with relevant experience and expertise. Applicants must be nominated by a BSC Trading Party (who does not have to be their employer), obtain their employer’s agreement and agree to act impartially in accordance with the SVG’s Terms of Reference (see Related Content, right). The BSC Panel considers and determines all applications. Members are expected to make themselves available at all reasonable times to attend meetings and to carry out their duties and functions as a Member. Where an Industry Member is unable to attend, they may appoint either one of the approved Industry Member Alternates or another Industry Member as their acting Alternate.
