February 2021 Release

The approved Implementation Date for this Release is 25 February 2021.

This page details the scope of the February 2021 Release, including the documents and BSC Systems (collectively Configurable Items) that will be amended.

You can find the approved amendments for each document for each change on the relevant change page. We also publish conformed versions of documents on Changes Awaiting Implementation, which include amendments to the documents for all approved changes (and not just this Release).

Scope of the Release

The following changes are in scope:

Approved Changes

  • P414: ‘Allowing a Party to Withdraw from the BSC and transfer outstanding liabilities to another Party’
  • CP1530: ‘Introduction of a formalised process for the validation of measurement transformer ratios by Elexon’ (Part) – All document changes for CP1530 will be implemented in the June 2021 Release, but the Elexon Portal changes will be implemented in this Release. This change will be implemented on 8 February 2021 (in the evening) and and will become effective immediately. 
  • CP1533: ‘Mandatory Sending of D0052 for DCC serviced SVA NHH Metering Systems’
  • CP1534: ‘Introduce Change of Supplier (CoS) – No Meter Process’
  • CP1536: ‘Use of DTC data flow D0379 for submission of unmetered Half Hourly data’
  • CP1537: ‘Extending the Timescales for agreeing Technical Assurance of Performance Assurance Parties (TAPAP) Findings Reports’

Impact on BSC systems

There is no impact to BSC systems. There is a change to the Elexon Portal only, as part of CP1530. This phased approach is to allow participants to carry out data cleansing before CP1530 goes live.

Configurable Items impacted by this Release

Certain documents (in accordance with the Baseline Statement) are approved when the change is approved. Others; following approval of the change, are drafted and approved as part of the implementation phase. All documents on the Baseline Statement are issued for industry consultation or comment and approved by the BSC Panel or Panel Sub-Committee.
