P275 Extending BSC Performance Assurance

Formal title: Extending BSC Performance Assurance

Current Status

Initial Written Assessment
Assessment Procedure
Report Phase
With Authority
Awaiting Implementation


P275 seeks to amend the BSC to clarify that the scope of  Performance Assurance under the BSC is not limited to Trading Parties and that any risk of error or inaccuracy in Settlement data may be considered, not just issues that directly impact the determination and settlement of Trading Charges.

Note: the scope of P275 is much less that implied by the title and set out in the proposal form. P275 is a Code-only change to deliver a clarification of the BSC, and would not affect the actual scope of BSC Performance Assurance.


Electricity North West raised P275 on 29 September 2011. It underwent a five-month Assessment Procedure by a Workgroup, and was approved as a Self-Governance Modification Proposal by the Panel on 12 April 2012.

Following the closure of the appeal window, and with no appeal being notified, P275 was implemented in line with the Panel’s decision on 8 May 2012.
