This modification seeks to enable the Smart Energy Code (SEC) to meet the original policy intent for the Smart Metering Equipment Technical Specifications 1 (SMETS1) security obligations in SEC Section G, to apply only from the date on which SMETS1 Devices start to be enrolled into the Data Communications Company (DCC). This will avoid the potential for Supplier Parties to be in breach of SEC obligations.
