Issue 49: Change of Measurement Class (CoMC) process for Advanced Meters

Formal title: Change of Measurement Class (CoMC) process for Advanced Meters

Current Status


Electricity supply standard licence condition 12 requires that by 6 April 2014 Suppliers must not supply electricity at any Metering Point in Profile Classes 5 to 8 other than through an Advanced Meter. From that date, the Change of Measurement Class (CoMC) process from Non Half Hourly (NHH) to Half Hourly (HH) is likely to involve a NHH Meter which is already HH capable. Whilst the current BSCP processes make some allowances for a CoMC with no change of Meter, they do not fully embrace the possibility that a CoMC can take place without the need for a site visit by the MOA.

Elexon has been asked to review the CoMC process by the Profiling and Settlement Review Group (PSRG) to ensure that the complexity (real or perceived) of the CoMC process does not act as a barrier to elective HH Settlement.


Issue 49 was raised by Elexon on 24 June 2013. The Final Issue Report was presented to the BSC Panel on 13 February 2014. The Issue is now closed.
