|Latest update||On 24 February 2021, the Change Board voted to approve this modification under Self-Governance. This modification will be implemented in the June 2021 SEC Release.|
What is the issue?
The DCC are required to provide information to Parties via the Self Service Interface (SSI) regarding the Smart Metering Wide Area Network (SM WAN) availability for SMETS1 and SMETS2 Devices. Some Users systems may use a hardcoded date of 1 January 2021 within their business process which may cause issue for them now the date is no longer relevant.
What is the solution?
To remove the date 1 January 2021 from the SEC Section H8.16 as this would allow futureproofing the SEC for Suppliers to continue to provide a service to areas where WAN coverage is yet to be installed.
Who is impacted?
What SEC documents are affected?
