BSC Panel in the Code
Section B of the Code sets out the rules covering the constitution and governance of the BSC Panel, its objectives and powers.
The Panel's role
The BSC Panel is a group of industry experts and consumer representatives. Its role is to govern the BSC and ensure that all Parties comply with the code’s rules. The Panel also assesses BSC rule change proposals (called Modifications) and votes on whether to approve or reject a Modification.
In cases where the change has a material impact on BSC Parties, the Panel makes a recommendation to Ofgem on whether the change should be approved or not.
