The SEC Party Operations contact list is a database containing primary and secondary Operations contacts for each Party. The database will assist SEC Parties to quickly find Operational contacts within different SEC Parties in order to resolve issues.
The SEC Party Operation’s contact list will supersede the Critical Alerts Supplier contact list. Please see below for further details on managing Critical Alerts.
Managing Critical Alerts after DCC User to Non-DCC User churn
In the absence of a non-gateway solution, on customer churn from a DCC User to a non-DCC User, the Supplier (DCC User) whose security credentials remain on a meter will continue to receive any Critical Alerts sent by that meter.
Following industry consultation through Energy UK, a set of principles and a process to manage these alerts has been established.
The, Managing Critical Alerts where there is DCC User to Non-DCC User Churn Guidance Note, is developed and maintained by SECAS. The purpose of this guidance note is to illustrate the process and requirements for dealing with Critical Alerts where there is DCC User to Non-User churn. The guidance note includes:
- the DCC User Suppliers, Non-DCC User Suppliers, and SECAS process steps;
- a description of the SEC Party Operations contact list;
- a process map outlining how critical alerts should be forwarded on from a DCC User to Non-DCC User Supplier;
- a process map outlining the process SECAS and Suppliers undertake to update the Party Operations contact list; and
- the list of relevant Critical Alerts that this process will apply to.
The SEC Party Operations contact list will be updated and published securely on the SEC website. It will include the main and alternative contact references of the respective SEC Parties. In order to be effective, it will be up to SEC Parties to ensure that the contact details remain up to date.
How to update the SEC Party Operations Contact List
SEC Parties are requested to proactively provide the contact details to the SECAS Helpdesk. On a quarterly basis, SECAS will initiate an email and will require confirmation from each SEC Party that the contact details are valid.
