SECMP0041 Amending the Change Board decision making rules for Modification Proposals

Proposer Catherine Duggan
Lead Analyst SEC Change
Date raised 02/08/2017
Implementation date n/a
Latest update The Authority decided to reject this modification proposal on 26 October 2018.

What is the issue?

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.

What is the solution?

The proposed solution is to amend the Modification Report Consultation to introduce a formal, but non-obligatory vote for SEC Party respondents to ensure the Change Board votes in accordance with the industry.

Who is impacted?

Small Suppliers
Large Suppliers
Electricity Network Parties
Gas Network Parties
Other SEC Parties

What SEC documents are affected?

SEC Section A 'Definitions and Interpretations'
SEC Section D 'Modification Process'
