P370: Allowing non-BSC Parties to raise Modifications
Formal title: P370 'Allow the Panel to designate non-BSC Parties to raise Modifications'
The current designation process to allow non-BSC Parties to raise Modifications is described in BSC Section F ‘Modification Procedures’. Currently, the Authority shall designate a ‘representative’ of an interested third party to raise a Modification. This designation process was recently tested for the first time since the BSC was introduced and has been shown to be slow and opaque. It is also contrary to the direction of travel encouraged by the Authority for Panels to become more Self-Governing.
This Modification proposes to move the designation process from the Authority to the BSC Panel; and for the Authority to become the body to which appeals may be made.
At its meeting on 12 July 2018, ELEXON recommended to the Panel to raise P370. The Panel agreed to raise the Modification Proposal in accordance with Section F2.1.1(d)(i) and agreed for the Modification to proceed directly to the Report Phase.
A workgroup meeting is being planned for the week beginning 30 July 2018.
