Formal title: Reinforcing the Commissioning of Metering Equipment Processes
P283 proposes changes intended to reinforce Metering Equipment commissioning processes. The Modification would place commissioning obligations on the Transmission Company and Licenced Distribution System Operators because the Registrant and Meter Operator Agent are often not well placed to complete Metering Equipment commissioning.
The BSC Panel raised P283 following a recommendation by the Performance Assurance Board (based on work by ELEXON and the Technical Assurance of Metering Expert Group (TAMEG)). The Workgroup recommended that P283 should be approved, and its Assessment Report was presented to the Panel at its meeting on 13 June 2013. The Panel initially recommended that P283 should be approved and issued P283 for its Report Phase Consultation. The Panel made its final recommendation that P283 should be approved at its meeting on 11 July 2013.
P283 was approved by Ofgem on 31 July 2013 and was implemented on 6 November 2014 as part of the November 2014 BSC Systems Release.
