17 April 2019

SEC Section F1.4 (i) sets out the requirement on the Technical Architecture and Business Architecture Sub-Committee (TABASC) to develop and thereafter maintain the Technical Architecture Document (TAD) and the Business Architecture Document (BAD).

In advance of SMETS1 Services Release going live later this year, the BAD and TAD have now been updated to apply the SMETS1 Services Release content as well as other necessary SEC content updates.

Prior to receiving TABASC approval of the updated documents, an industry review is being undertaken to provide an opportunity for SEC Parties, and other interested parties to provide views. The following documentation is included to aid this process:

The updates relating to the SMETS1 Service Release related are shown in Attachment A and B as tracked changes for ease of review. Please refer to Attachment C for a summary of all the changes that resulting in the SMETS1 Services Release and the impact on these documents.

If you wish to provide feedback on the SMETS1 Services Release content, along with any other specific comments you may have on the BAD and TAD content, please complete the attached Appendix D feedback form and submit to by 20 May 2019.

Following the review period, all comments will be collated and reviewed with revisions drafted, as required. The updated BAD and TAD, post industry review will then be submitted to the TABASC for discussion and approval prior to being published on the SEC website.

Please note, the BAD is accompanied by the Business Architecture Model (BAM), which provides a high-level view of the processes set out within the BAD. The supporting SMETS1 Services Release changes to the BAM are scheduled to be drafted following the final changes drafted within the BAD. Once complete, you will be able to view an updated model that includes any SMETS1 Services Release changes.
