P281 seeks to change the make-up of the Balancing and Settlement Code Company (BSCCo) Board of Directors in order to:

  • Allow BSC Parties a more active say in the management and oversight of BSCCo; and
  • Ensure the appropriate separation of the BSCCo Board from the management of Elexon Limited, should Elexon be permitted to diversify its activities

P281 has undergone an Assessment Procedure by a Workgroup, and the Workgroup’s Assessment Report was presented to the Panel at its meeting on 12 July 2012.
