Compliance testing and protocol approval of Settlement Meters and Outstations

This guidance is to assist those seeking to deploy new Meters and/or Outstations for use in Half Hourly (HH) Settlement in the Great Britain (GB) market. This is primarily aimed at Meter/Outstation manufacturers seeking compliance testing approval and protocol approval, who may not be familiar with the Balancing and Settlement Code (BSC) and its Code Subsidiary Documents. Half Hourly Data Collectors (HHDCs) and the Central Data Collection Agent (CDCA) will also find this guidance useful when seeking protocol approval for Outstations they wish to collect HH data from, for use in Settlement.
