Awaiting Implementation


P257 takes forward two of the Trading Dispute Committee (TDC) recommended changes that came out of the Trading Dispute process review carried out in 2009.
P257 proposes to streamline and increase the efficiency of the Trading Dispute Process, by removing the concept of Trading Queries and allowing Elexon to close invalid Trading Disputes when the Raising Party agrees that it is invalid.


At its meeting on 8 July, the BSC Panel initially agreed that P257 should be made. The Panel also agreed an initial implementation date of 4 November 2010 if an Authority decision is made on or before 24 September 2010.
On 20 September the Authority approved P257. This Modification was implemented as part of the November 2010 Release.
