Awaiting Implementation


British Gas raised P320 as a result of the outcome of Issue 59.

The implementation of P272 would require changes to the existing PARMS Serials to report any non-compliance. The Proposer believes that a Committee report would be a more suitable reporting tool than PARMS Serials and proposes to remove the PARMS Serial reporting requirements introduced by P272. Reporting P272 non-compliance using a Committee report would also remove the proposed Supplier Charge under P272.


We issued P320 Assessment Consultation on 15 May 2015 and invited market participants to respond by 5 June 2015.

The Workgroup will meet on 10 June and recommended to the Panel that P320 should be approved.

The BSC Panel initially recommended approval of P320 at its meeting on 9 July 2015.

We issued P320 Report Phase Consultation on 9 July 2015 and invited market participants to respond by 28 July 2015.

The Authority approved P320 on 9 September 2015.
