BEIS has issued a consultation on amendments to a number of licence conditions to support the special administration arrangements for the DCC introduced as part of the 2018 Smart Meters Act. The affected licences include standard conditions of electricity supply licences, gas shipper licences and transmission licences as well as a special condition of National Grid’s gas transportation licence and the DCC licence.
