Implementation date Unknown
Latest update At the September CSC, members recommended the issue to be addressed by the DCC as ICHIS is a DCC document. On 28 January 2021, the Proposer agreed to withdraw the Draft Proposal. The proposal was confirmed as withdrawn on 11 February 2021.

What is the issue?

The Data Communication Company’s (DCC’s) derogation period for Intimate Communications Hub Interface Specification (ICHIS) Radio Frequency (RF) levels ended in March 2020. A number of electricity meters remain in the supply chain but not installed that are no longer complaint following the end of the derogation, which would make them unusable.
The Proposer believes that the SEC is in the process of supporting innovative changes to allow the re-use of meters.

The Proposer feels there are also multiple scenarios where a meter, once compliant should be able to be re-deployed.
The Proposer believes the wider impacts would lead to inefficiency across the supply chain of reported meters installed negative cost-benefit impact on Parties with a large number of meters that have become non-compliant.
