SECMP 0041: Amending the Change Board decision making rules for Modification Proposals

Date raised 02/08/2017 Modifications Path Path 2 – Authority Determination
Current stage Not Applicable Overall status Rejected
Refinement? Yes Urgent modification? No
Proposer name Catherine Duggan Proposer's organisation Electricity North West Limited


The Smart Energy Code (SEC) does not allow SEC Parties to vote on SEC Modification Proposals. Nor does it bind SEC Change Board Members to vote in line with responses received from SEC Parties to Modification Report Consultations (MRCs).

This modification seeks to change SEC Section D 'Modification Process' to ensure:

  • each SEC Party is entitled to vote on SEC variations; and

  • SEC Change Board Members' votes are bound by the views/votes put forward by their Party Category.
