Implementation date 03/11/2022 (Nov 22 SEC Release)
Latest update On 20 April 2022 the Change Board voted to approve this modification under Self-Governance. This modification will be implemented in the November 2022 SEC Release (Thursday 3 November 2022).

What is the issue?

MP098 'Incorporation of multiple Issue Resolution Proposals into the SEC - Batch 3' was implemented in the November 2020 SEC Release. It incorporated 20 non-Data Communications Company (DCC) System impacting Issue Resolution Proposals (IRPs) into the GB Companion Specification (GBCS) v4.0 and Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications 2 (SMETS2) of that release.

During the development of MP098, there was no material benefit to implement the 20 IRPs into the GBCS version 3 series. SEC Parties would like the option to incorporate these 20 IRPs into the GBCS v3 series as and when a material change necessitates an uplift to the next GBCS v3.x.

What is the solution?

The Proposed Solution was originally to incorporate these 20 IRPs into the GBCS version 3 series as and when a material change necessitates an uplift to the next GBCS v3.x. MP143 is the only modification seeking an uplift to the GCBS version 3 series.

Following feedback from TSIRS and Device Manufacturers this has now been amended to implement only 5 IRPs that are required to remain compliant with the Commercial Product Assurance (CPA) scheme.

Who is impacted?

Large Suppliers
Small Suppliers
Other SEC Parties (Device Manufacturers)
DCC

What SEC documents are affected?

Schedule 8 'GB Companion Specification'
Schedule 11 'TS Applicability Tables'
