Multiple Supplier IDs were formalised in the BSC by the implementation of Modification Proposal P106 ‘Amendments to the BSC to allow Multiple Supplier IDs’, with the restriction that a Supplier may hold no more than three Supplier IDs in relation to which the Supplier is the first holder of such Supplier ID. This Modification proposes to allow a Supplier to apply for a fourth or more Supplier IDs through an application submitted to the Panel. The existing provisions for registering the first three Supplier IDs will remain unchanged under P343.


P343 was raised by Npower Limited on 26 May 2016. The Panel agreed to submit P343 to an Assessment Procedure with the Assessment Report due to be presented by 8 September 2016. The Assessment Report was presented to the BSC Panel at its meeting on 13 October 2016. The Report Phase Consultation has been issued on 17 October 2016 for response by Monday 31 October 2016. On 10 November 2016 the Panel approved P343 as a Self-Governance Modification for implementation on 23 February 2017.
