P183 – Additional Mechanisms for Obtaining a valid Change of Supplier Read
Formal title: Additional Mechanisms for Obtaining a valid Change of Supplier Read
This Modification Proposal proposes to amend the BSC so that: An estimate of a Change of Supply read, generated by the old Supplier, is acceptable for sending to the Data Collector as a Change of Supply read in certain limited circumstances, and A Supplier who has more than one candidate CoS read (e.g. a customer own read taken at the point of sale; a customer own read taken later in the Change of Supplier process; and/or an estimated Change of Supplier read provided by the old Supplier) can select the most appropriate one for onward transmission to the Non Half Hourly Data Collector. Currently the Supplier is required to forward all customer-provided consumption data to the Data Collector.
The Authority approved the Proposed Modification on 26 May 2005.
