MP144 Charging of Random Sample Privacy Assessments

Proposer Terry Jefferson
Lead Analyst Harry Jones
Date raised 05/10/2020
StageRefinement Process
Implementation date Targeted for June 2021 SEC Release
Latest update The Modification Report will be presented to the Panel for decision on Friday 16 April 2021.

What is the issue?

A Random Sample Privacy Assessment is an assessment carried out by an Independent Privacy Auditor (IPA) to identify the extent to which an Other User is compliant with each of its obligations. Any costs which are incurred in the completion of Random Sample Privacy Assessments are then socialised across all Users. Because of this, it results in the industry as a whole paying for assessments which only Other Users undertake.

What is the solution?

The Proposed Solution is to amend SEC Section I "Data Privacy" to remove references to Random Sample Privacy Assessments being treated as having "recoverable costs" as its payment method.

Who is impacted?

Large Suppliers
Small Suppliers
Electricity Network Parties
Gas Network Parties
