StageDevelopment Stage
Implementation date Targeted for Jun 21 SEC Release
Latest update On 30 March 2021, the Change Sub-Committee recommended this proposal should be progressed as a Fast-Track Modification. It will be presented to the Panel on 16 April 2021.

What is the issue?

MP118 ‘Communications Hub Finance Charges’ was implemented as part of the November 2020 SEC Release. MP118 proposed changes to SEC Sections J1.2(a), J1.2(b) and J1.7 so that the DCC is no longer obliged to bill Communications Hub Finance Charges under separate invoices. The solution proposed that all invoiced items will be included on one invoice and paid to one bank account. This will be more efficient for the Approved Finance Party and the DCC to invoice and easier for SEC Parties to pay.

The changes required to Section J1.2(b) to facilitate the Proposed Solution were erroneously omitted from the legal text of MP118 during the Refinement Process due to human error.

What is the solution?

The Proposed Solution is to amend Section J 1.2(b) so that the DCC only has to provide a separate invoice for Communications Hub Finance Charges if that is what is required under the direct agreement with the Approved Finance Party.

Who is impacted?

All SEC Parties

What SEC documents are affected?
