ORD007: Support for Supplier registration disputes
Formal title: BEIS direction to require the BSC Panel to support the SEC Panel for Supplier registration disputes
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) consulted on whether the smart meter Data Communications Company (DCC) should be required to provide an enrolment service for meter manufacturer EDMI SMETS1 (Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specification) meters.
BEIS proposes that the BSC Panel provides support and information to the Smart Energy Code (SEC) Panel. This would involve the BSC Panel assisting the SEC Panel in resolving disputes about which identification codes used in registration data should be associated with which electricity Supplier.
On 18 June 2020, BEIS decided to approve these changes and will subsequently direct a change to the BSC.
