Latest update The Refinement Consultation is now open and the Consultation can be found below in Modification Documents. The deadline for responses is 5pm on Friday 2 October 2020.

What is the issue?

Following the National Audit Office’s (NAO) 23rd November 2018 report "Rolling Out Smart Meters", the Government Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) commissioned an independent review into device interoperability on Change of Supplier (CoS). The report was published in October 2019, with one of the recommendations being that "Energy suppliers and the Smart Metering Device Assurance (SMDA) Board should review the SMDA funding model to ensure SMDA can provide long-term test assurance". Following this recommendation, amendments should be suggested to the SMDA funding model.

What is the solution?

The Proposed Solution is to bring the SMDA Scheme under the SEC Panel. The SMDA Co Board will become the SDMA Sub-Committee (SMDASC) and the SMDA Management Panel (SMDAMP) will become a sub-group of the SMDASC.
