Digitising market entry and registrations 2018-2019

ELEXON is developing an online service for customers who are considering entering the market, registering assets such as Balancing Mechanism (BM) Units or exiting the market.

How it relates to you

As part of Market Entry, companies need to accede to the BSC, provide and register key information such as your authorised signatories, market roles and Balancing Mechanism Units (BM Units).

Currently, this process is heavily paper-based. The online service aims to provide digital forms with self-service access to your market entry and registrations data along with a guided process through the various routes you can take when registering different market roles.
