Technical Architecture Document Industry Review – Release 2.0 and SEC content

14 March 2018

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).

In advance of Release 2.0 going live later this year, the TAD has now been updated to apply the Release 2.0 content as well as other necessary SEC content updates since the first version of the TAD was produced by BEIS (formally DECC) in 2015.

Prior to the TABASC undertaken approval activities the updated document is being issued for Industry Review to provide an opportunity for SEC Parties, and other interested parties to provide views on the changes. The following documentation is included to aid this process:

  • Technical Architecture Document Review – cover document
    • Attachment A – Draft Release 2.0 version of the TAD
    • Attachment B – Spreadsheet summarising the key changes to the TAD and the associated driver
    • Attachment C – TAD review response form, to enable comments and questions on the draft TAD to be submitted

If you wish to provide feedback on the Release 2.0 content, along with any other specific comments you may have on the TAD content, please complete the attached Appendix C – TAD review response form and submit to by Thursday 12th April 2018.

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