Enhancing our customer enquiry processes using Elexon Support
In our recent customer feedback survey, a number of customers expressed the need for a more efficient and streamlined process to submit and track enquiries and concerns related to the BSC and its services.

Impact of MHHS Programme Change Freeze on BSC Changes
The Market Wide Half-Hourly Settlement (MHHS) Programme has implemented a Programme Change Freeze. This means that any BSC Changes that require changes to the MHHS design or MHHS code drafting (via a MHHS Change Request) are likely to have their implementation postponed.
Code Drafting in preparation for Market-Wide Half Hourly Settlement (MHHS)
A significant amount of work is being done by Elexon and the Market-wide Half Hourly Settlement Programme (MHHSP) to make changes to BSC documents (or to develop new documents) in preparation for MHHS.
