Lead Analyst Bradley Baker
Date raised 11/12/2019
Implementation date 29 November 2020
Latest update This modification was implemented on 29 November 2020 as part of the November 2020 SEC Release.

What is the issue?

IRPs identify issues within the Smart Energy Code (SEC) Technical Specification documents and put forward a solution to the identified problem. BEIS took the lead in developing the Technical Specifications that sit under the SEC during the early stages of the Smart Metering Implementation Program. BEIS has taken responsibility for receiving and responding to issues raised internally, by the DCC and by other interested Industry Parties. Since inception, several hundred issues have been raised in relation to technical specifications under the SEC through the Technical Specification Issue Resolution Sub-group (TSIRS). In some cases, these queries have been resolved by providing an explanation of the specifications, whilst other have resulted in proposed amendments to the specifications in the form of IRPs.

This Proposal has been raised to implement 20 non DCC System impacting IRPs, which can be found in the table below.

Who is impacted?

All SEC Parties
