SECMP0009 Centralised Firmware Library

Proposer Mark Pitchford
Lead Analyst SEC Change
Date raised 01/03/2016
Implementation date 28/02/2019
Latest update This Modification was implemented on 28 February 2019.

What is the issue?

This Modification Proposal establishes a Firmware Information Repository, with access provided to all Parties responsible for the management of Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications (SMETS) 1 and/or SMETS2 meters. This will sit alongside the Central Products List (CPL) and will be updated in tandem. It will list, for each entry on the CPL, the relevant manufacturer's contact details and any additional information the manufacturer wishes to provide about that version of firmware.

The Firmware Information Repository can be found here.

What is the solution?

To address concerns raised during the assessment of SECMP0009 surrounding IPR and security, the initial solution of a CFL was amended. SECMP0009 is therefore proposing to establish a minimal information set that will allow a gaining Supplier to easily identify the most recent firmware release for a given asset and which Manufacturer to contact regarding acquiring any updated versions required.

Who is impacted?

This Modification will impact Supplier Parties, Meter Manufacturers and Firmware Developers.
