Policy Board [PB]

The Policy Board provides a formal forum for collective consideration of significant policy issues connected with the implementation of the Smart Meter Programme. Depending on the nature of the issue, the Board may determine issues by agreement, or co-ordinate advice and recommendations to the Smart Meter Senior Responsible Owner (SRO) and/or Ministers.

Any proposed changes in established policy, or significant policy issues which require resolution, is usually referred to the Senior Responsible Officer.

The Policy Board also provides a forum for considering policy issues relevant to the Programme arising from other Government policies and initiatives and the impact of smart meter policy on other Department for Energy Climate Change objectives.
