Smart Metering Key Infrastructure (SMKI) means the public key infrastructure established by the DCC for the main purpose of providing secure communications between Devices and Users. The Policy Management Authority (PMA) is a Sub-Committee of the SEC Panel established to govern the SMKI document set and to gain assurance of the DCC operation of SMKI devices.

The SMKI PMA meets monthly, with the principle duty of managing the requirements for the SMKI, and to provide governance and change control for the relevant SEC content and artefacts. Establishing the SMKI PMA enables the SEC Panel to work together with key industry and other delivery partners to deliver SEC duties in relation to SMKI management and assurance of the DCC operation of SMKI services.

The SMKI PMA is made up of:

  • 3 Large Suppliers
  • 1 Small Supplier
  • 2 Network Parties (Gas and Electricity)
  • 1 SSC Representative
  • 1 TABASC Representative
  • Independent Chair
  • 1 SMKI Specialist
  • DCC, Ofgem, BEIS
