MP090 Incorporation of Non GBCS Non-Mandated Alerts into the SEC

Proposer Emslie Law
Lead Analyst Khaleda Hussain
Date raised 16/10/2019
Implementation date 4 November 2021
Latest update This modification was implemented on 4 November 2021 as part of the November 2021 SEC Release.

What is the issue?

Many DCC Users only recognise Alerts defined in GBCS. As a result, DCC Users systems have not been designed to recognise NGNM Alerts that are not defined in GBCS. These Alerts are currently being sent to DCC Users with no contextual information and no means to disable them. To monitor and manually define these Alerts is an inefficient working practice, especially if the DCC User deems the Alert unnecessary. This will continue until the NGNM Alerts are migrated into the SEC.
